'Big Brother' 2016: Ryan Ruckledge And Hughie Maughan Kiss During A Private Moment

Sparks are flying in the 'other' house.

Sparks are flying once again in ‘Big Brother’, as Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan were seen sharing a steamy kiss in Thursday night’s (17 June) episode of the reality series.

It should have been a tough night for Ryan, who was condemned to the ‘other’ house when he failed his secret mission to get Laura Carter put up for eviction.

However, he was able to look on the bright side, as he and Hughie were seen having a cuddle in the garden, interspersed with a flat about flatulence.

Because nothing sets the mood quite like flatulence chat, Ryan and Hughie both eventually moved in for a snog.

In the middle of their kiss, Ryan was seen suddenly remembering where they were, declaring: “Oh no, this is on TV!”

Don’t worry, Ryan, this is far from the first time we’ve seen romance (or, at least, hormones) flying in this year’s house.

The group had been in there for just a few days when Marco Pierre White Jr and Laura Carter raised eyebrows with their explicit shenanigans, which included her choking him with a belt before they got steamy in the communal bedroom.

And that’s without even mentioning the saliva-swapping that took place during a game of spin the bottle last week, which saw Evelyn Ellis and the now-axed Andrew Tate getting in on the action.

What Ryan doesn’t know, though, is that he’s also landed himself in a whole lot of hot water in the real world, over a tweet he penned to ‘BB’ winner Luke Anderson four years ago, which has now been unearthed.

Despite two housemates already leaving via the back door, ‘BB’ will see its first eviction in Friday night’s (17 June) show, which kicks off at 9pm on Channel 5.
