However far from being awkward or annoyed at the decision, the 33-year-old looked super excited to be back with her former flame, who she dated after they met on the show back in 2006.

In true eccentric Pete style, the bouncy star appeared sporting a purple mow hawk, earrings and a sequinned leather jacket.

And despite things not working out for everyone’s favourite BB couple, it appears they still maintain a close friendship - being pictured together as recently as November 2014.

Tourettes sufferer Pete fell on hard times recently, admitting in April that he had lost all the money he made winning Big Brother.

‘It all kind of went wrong, it didn’t go to plan. I had all that money and I didn’t know what to do with it.’

‘I put it on the wrong things. I was homeless after having so much money, it’s easy come, easy go.’

‘The fame pushed me in a way I didn’t want to go, I didn’t like it.’

But despite these assertions, it looks like Pete is set for another stint in the Big Brother house this time around. Are you glad to see him back?
