Nicola and Jamie had a heart-to-heart about their friendship, but some fans thought it was all a little weird...
Well, things have gotten a little awkward on Celebrity Big Brother.
Fans think that Nicola McLean and Jamie O’Hara appeared to get ever-so-slightly flirty during the show which aired on Channel 5 last night, despite the fact that they’ve made it clear they’re just friends.
During a chat in the smoking area, the pair decided to have a heart-to-heart about their friendship.
Having known each other for years, Jamie is good pals with Nicola’s husband, Tom Williams. What’s more, Nic’ used to be BFFs with Danielle Lloyd, who is now Jamie’s ex wife, before they fell out.
Clearly, Nicola felt that there might have been some underlying bad blood with her fellow housemate, as she turned to Jamie and said: ‘I know you hate me.’
But the footballer soon corrected her, saying: ‘No, I love you’, later adding that he loves Tom and therefore loves his missus. Makes sense.
Jamie then promised to ‘look after’ her during their time in the house, and they sealed it with a friendly peck on the cheek.
Calum Best, who was watching the situation unfold, decided to stir things a little bit by asking them to ‘kiss on the lips’. Jamie admitted: ‘I’d love to, but I have too much respect for my bruv.’
Nicola joked: ‘We’ve done it before.’
A source has since revealed to The Sun that Nicola ‘has never kissed Jamie O’Hara and that wasn’t what her remark meant.’
Danielle Lloyd hasn’t shied away from commenting on her ex’s behaviour on the show so far, previously responding to a fan’s comment about her former husband’s cheating.

So, what did she do during last night’s on-screen antics? Take a lovely, relaxing bubble bath and have some ‘me’ time, apparently.
The 33-year-old posted a photo of her home set-up, along with the caption: ‘And chill… 👌🏻 healthy mind body and soul ✌🏻️’.
