Dan Osborne left Gabby Allen fuming on Thursday’s Celebrity Big Brother after he confessed to thinking the Love Island star is this year’s hottest housemate.
The somewhat awkward moment came during deliberation over which two housemates were voted the ‘hottest’ by the general public.
Gabby and Dan were previously at the centre of endless affair rumours which they strongly deny, as the pals were seen putting on a cosy display on a yacht in Marbella earlier this year.

It came as the housemates were asked which housemates were considered the hottest for a task, which could see them win a party.
Inevitably many chose Dan and Ryan Thomas due to their hunky physiques, but Dan could be heard saying: ‘I think Ryan and Gabby.’
While his admission seemed to go unnoticed, Ryan told the ex-TOWIE star: ‘Oh come on mate, Dan you’re gorgeous.’

Gabby didn’t seem pleased by the revelation, silently sighing as the house finally decided on Ryan and Dan.
Since entering the house Dan and Gabby’s chemistry has sparked much speculation among viewers due to their close friendship, which previously sparked rumours that they were having an affair.
The pair have constantly denied the rumours, and Dan has since revealed in the house he has reconciled with estranged wife Jacqueline.

The reality star admitted earlier this week he used to walk away from heated rows with his spouse instead of facing them ‘like a man’, adding he thinks that contributed to the relationship turning sour.
He said: ‘Jacqueline’s like “you don’t even argue back” and instead of having a conversation with her like a man, I go out and don’t even have the conversation. I’m gone.’
But Dan has also gone onto admit that the birth of the couple’s second daughter Mia in May has helped to repair their relationship, and he had moved back into the family home before entering the CBB house.

Gabby and Dan were grilled about their relationship by evicted housemate Natalie Nunn, who asked whether the pair had ‘f****d.’
The Love Island beauty quickly retorted: ‘That was in the press because my ex-boyfriend said we did.’
‘Dan is married and has been ever since I’ve known him and they were still together when I met him.
‘He’s just had a baby seven weeks ago. I spoke to his wife [Jacqueline] and everything. I said to her: “I just want to let you know, nothing happened.”‘
