CBB viewers thought it didn't bode well that Marnie Simpson couldn't recognise her 'love' Lewis Bloor on the phone


Marnie Simpson was suprised with a phonecall from her boyfriend Lewis Bloor during a task in Celebrity Big Brother.

The pair have admittedly only been together for about three weeks after falling in love in the house, but it all went slightly awkward when Marnie couldn't recognise who was on the phone.

"On a scale of one to 10 how much are you missing Lewis?" the mystery caller asked.

"Like a million," Marnie replied.

"That's Lewis," Aubrey O'Day pointed out, realising Marnie hadn't clocked it.

Marnie was not willing to accept it was her boyfriend on the phone.

"You and Bear are doing so well, everyone absolutely loves you," Lewis said.

"Oh, I love you Lewis," Marnie belatedly cried."Do you miss us?"

"Of course I do, I feel sick. I can't wait to see you," he replied. "Marnie, I love you so much."

"I love you too," she screamed.

For a couple wildly in love, it wasn't a good start that she'd forgotten his voice.

Celebrity Big Brother returns for the final on Friday at 9pm.
