The Bachelorette star Chad Johnson has admitted he has a crush on his Celebrity Big Brother housemate Sarah Harding.

The reality TV star, who has been locked in the Channel 5 house for a week-and-a-half with the former Girls Aloud member, is seen confessing his romantic feelings in Friday night’s episode.

Viewers will also see the tensions between Harding, former Hollyoaks star Paul Danan and Ex On The Beach’s Jemma Lucy continue to bubble over in scenes that will air ahead of the second live eviction of the series.

Up for eviction are Harding and Johnson, along with former Apprentice star Karthik Nagesan and YouTube personality Trisha Paytas.

US star Johnson tells Big Brother in the Diary Room: “I like hanging out with Sarah. We flirt.

“I just want to keep hanging out with her, and see what happens. I think it’s better to be friends first, and see where things go.”

Speaking about his flirting with X Factor star Amelia Lily, he says: “I definitely went too hard with the Amelia thing. That was stupid. That was a bad decision. It basically blew up in my face.

“With Sarah, I don’t want to do that. I think it’s possible that something could happen.”

Big Brother fans will also see the aftermath of Danan’s row with Harding over a rumour that she had said he had “taken a pill”.

Both Danan and Harding have been keen to remain sober during their time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, but the remark saw Danan fly into a rage when he discovered that the singer had allegedly accused him of taking something.

Following the argument, Harding and Danan make amends and discuss their row, while Harding blames sparring partner Lucy for turning the house against her.

Danan says: “That whole reaction was complete and utter wrong.”

Harding replies: “It got out of context and twisted. You should come to the source. Instead of Jemma jumping in. I feel that a certain person is trying to instigate things and make them worse.”

Danan advises Harding to “stay as clear as possible” from Lucy because she is trying to get a “rise” out of her.

However, Lucy later ends up rowing with Danan over his decision to apologise to Harding in yet another tense altercation in the house.

Celebrity Big Brother airs on Channel 5 at 8.30pm.
