Things could be hotting-up between Celebrity Big Brother's George Gilbey and Edele Lynch!

Celebrity Big Brother sweetie, George Gilbey, has obviously forgotten all about his former love interest, Stephanie Pratt! The Gogglebox star has shared a cheeky kiss with B*Witched singer, Edele Lynch, after a banter-filled flirt sesh.

The pair have been seen getting pretty cosy this week despite George declaring his love for The Hills star, Stephanie, before she was evicted last week.

Could George and Edele be the new Big Brother lovers? Or is George just filling the gap left by Steph?

NOW spoke exclusively to George’s mum, Linda McGarry, who revealed that Stephanie and George ‘will be friends for life, whatever happens.’

‘He really does like Stephanie and maybe there’ll be a romance once they get out of the house and away from the cameras,’ Linda told us. ‘I think Edele Lynch is his type.’

So would George make a good boyfriend?
‘Oh, he’s ever so romantic,’ admitted Linda. ‘For Valentine’s day one year he organized to fly his girlfriend all over London on a helicopter. But then I found out that he’d paid for it on my credit card! It cost £5,000, so I’ve had to hide my card now.’ Oh George, you total romantic!
