Big Brother contestants Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan appear to be smitten with each other after enjoying a passionate snog in the garden.

Last night’s (June 16) episode of the Channel 5 reality show saw the pair engage in a smooch after Ryan was sent back to join ‘The Others’ after failing his secret mission.

Ryan, who entered the main house guns blazing and reviving beef he had outside the house with Sam Giffen, appeared to have swapped strife for romance, telling Hughie: “I’ve missed you 20/10.”

He then engaged Hughie in an tight embrace, as the pair potentially sparked a rare same-sex romance for the show.

Wary of allowing passion to get the better of them, Ryan broke off, declaring: “No, this is on TV!”

This could well develop further, as neither Hughie or Ryan face pair faces eviction this week – that particular ordeal goes to housemates Marco, Andy, Emma, and Georgina.

Watch Ryan and Hughie get it on below:

Big Brother continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
