Christopher Biggins was made the "secret boss" of the Celebrity Big Brother house as contestants were given their first task.
Contestants were informed a house boss would be chosen while they enjoyed a silent disco.

After a public vote, Chris was told he had won the title, which gave him "special powers" including immunity from the first eviction and control over the nominations.
The rest of the contestants were told he had been chosen and it was also revealed to them that the task was a joke.
Trust Big Brother to throw in a curve ball so early on in the game.
Here's what viewers thought of the first task:
I feel sorry for Biggins who voted for him for the task?? Shame on you #CBB

I swear if Biggins starts getting targeted now and they start being mean to him over this task to get voted I'm done ? #CBB
