Big Brother viewers could not contain their excitement as Jordan referred to Henry as his husband during Tuesday’s episode of the show.
The friendship between the two housemates has been going from strength-to-strength after they both entered the house just over two weeks ago.
They immediately bonded over one another’s shared interests, with Jordan making Henry belly laugh with his dry sense of humour.
The pair shared a special moment in the garden together and even talked about their hypothetical child Tarquin this week which prompted fans to rejoice as they watched it unfold on screen.
After Matty poked Jordan in the leg as they sat together in the seating area outside, Jordan exclaimed: ‘Ow! Matty! Not in front of my husband!’

Matty responded: ‘Who’s your husband?’, before silently pointing to Henry.
Flashing a broad smile, Henry said: ‘I know. He cheats on me quite regularly Matty.’
Jordan chimed in: ‘But as I said, that’s the hallmark of a good marriage,’ to which Henry said: ‘It’s all part of our relationship.’
Matty – who spoke of his positive thoughts on open relationships last week – asked: ‘Is it open or is it not open?’, to which both Jordan and Henry both confirmed their relationship was monogamous.
Jordan said: ‘It’s all covert. That’s what makes it so exciting. If it were open we wouldn’t have that excitement.’
Mentioning their imaginary child Tarquin, Henry joked: ‘He’s sleeping with his tennis teacher and I’m sleeping with the headmaster at Tarquin’s school.’
Jordan added: ‘I’m sleeping with a yoga one and a secretary too. These are all different people.’
Henry then explained to Matty: ‘Our son’s called Tarquin,’ while Jordan said: ‘Our daughter Harlequin, we had to send her away… She was a bad girl.’

The moment delighted show fans, with many taking to Twitter to express their joy.

Big Brother’s Matty divided viewer opinion as he told fellow housemate Olivia she needed to change her perspective on open relationships during Sunday’s episode.
The doctor, 24, spoke positively about sexually non-monogamous marriages or relationships in which both parties are happy with their partner sleeping with other people.
Matty, who described himself as a ‘hippy’ who likes to ‘live free’ before entering the house last week, suggested Olivia should open her mind towards open relationships despite her not being able to imagine herself in such a situation.
Matty told Olivia: ‘The way that you’re looking at it is as if an open relationship is to prevent cheating so that no one gets hurt but if you switch your perspective, an open relationship gives you the freedom to pursue other people instead of the preventative of cheating.’
When Olivia asked how he learned his approach to open relationships, Matty responded: ‘Oh, Olivia, it’s not easy to learn! It’s rewiring your brain and rewiring everything you’ve been taught as a child.’

Olivia said: ‘It’s baffling me! How do you learn that?’
She continued: ‘Do you know what else I find crazy? Is how openly and how freely you can talk about it. It’s amazing to me.’
Matty told her: ‘For me, because it’s so normal, there’s no taboo. But maybe for people who have never heard of it before there can be a taboo around that subject.’
When asked by Olivia if his mother knew about his open relationships, Matty said of his mum and his partner’s parents: ‘Yeah, my mum knows, his parents know. They just say “do whatever you want that makes you happy”.’
Olivia said: ‘That is so forward thinking,’ to which Matty replied: ‘Yeah, it is. I’m very lucky. I’ve got a very progressive family.’
Speaking about his relationship, he said: ‘At the core of our relationship we just want each other to be happy.’
The moment divided viewer opinion, with many show fans taking to Twitter to express their thoughts on the conversation.
One person wrote: ‘No more open relationship propaganda please.’

Someone else asked: ‘Why is it that people in open relationships feel the need to always mention it like it is a personality trait.’
While someone else posted: ‘So what ITV thinks we find entertaining is learning that 2 of them are in open relationships? Erm no thanks.’
Another viewer wrote: ‘Matty is in an open relationship? I’ve never understood this idea each to their own but it’s not for me! If you are in the right relationship the idea of cheating is not in a thing!’
And someone else remarked: ‘Never been keen on open relationships and Matty’s explanation still wouldn’t convince me.’
‘I was really trying to like Matty but I’m finding it even harder to like Matty now even more after he was talking about open relationships,’ confessed another show fan.
While someone else wrote: ‘Matty is someone I really relate to. He is someone I would go out on a night out with. He’s someone I would definitely hang with. As someone who is also open in relationships, it’s so refreshing to relate to someone on reality show.’
Impressed with Matty’s views, another viewer shared: ‘Matty chatting about ENM is giving me life. “You have rewire everything you were taught as a child about relationships” Yes, yes and yes.’
Someone else wrote: ‘Good to hear Matty talking about open relationships in an intelligent way. Had both open and closed in the past and it feels like it’s still weirdly stigmatised despite the fact it should be of no interest to anyone other than those involved.’
And another viewer posted: ‘Open relationships are healthy,’ while someone else shared: ‘Open relationships are just childish.’
Big Brother continues on Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
BIG BROTHER 2023: MEET THE CONTESTANTS!

PROFESSION: Stay-at-home mum
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE PRIZE MONEY IF YOU WON? ‘I think my first priority is to sort out my housing situation. The housing crisis is just ridiculous and my housing situation has been unstable. It brings me a lot of mum guilt because I’ve got a young child. It’s my biggest incentive and motivation to win.’
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being cantankerous and acting as if I don’t want to be there even if I do in my heart. They might nominate me for being disengaged perhaps or not paying everyone an equal amount of attention. They may feel left out but I can’t help that.’
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF: ‘I appeared on a TV show called The Last Leg about amputees – two years before I lost my leg!’
WHAT MADE YOU APPLY TO BECOME A BIG BROTHER HOUSEMATE? ‘I love challenges. I’ve had so many amazing times in my life, like going to Miss Universe as Miss Great Britain. I like to do something different and I think this is the next challenge I want to conquer. I want to show people what pageant girls are really like and disprove a lot of stereotypes around them. I also show what it’s like being a woman who’s worked in male- dominated fields. I want to show that women are capable of doing anything they want.’
PROFESSION: Security officer
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being the biggest wind up, eating all the food and being the loudest housemate.’
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘I think when people are in that hangry state, that’s when I’ll wind people up and grind their gears. I think they’ll nominate me for being full on, and for my brutal honesty and oversharing of opinions.’
PROFESSION: Youth worker
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being lazy and having an opinion. I’m quite opinionated, I like speaking my mind and not many people like that. I’m quite real.’
PROFESSION: Customer support agent
WHAT PART OF THE EXPERIENCE ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO? ‘I’m most excited about being surrounded by so many people from different walks of life. I don’t think I will ever live in a house again with so many different kinds of people. I’m from China and I think it will help me be more immersed in British culture.’
PROFESSION: Dental therapist
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO BE NOMINATED FOR? ‘Probably just for being annoying. In Wales, we have this saying, “I’ll do it now in a minute.” So like, if I went to make food and I left a dish on the side, I have all good intentions of washing it but I’d be like, “I’ll do it now in a minute,” and it might be three hours later before I do it. So probably for silly stuff like that.’
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE PRIZE MONEY IF YOU WON? ‘Pay off my debts and help my family out. I’ve also been saving up to build a park in my village back at home in Thailand because where I grew up, there’s no parks or playgrounds.’
FROM: Isle Of Man
HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DESCRIBE YOU? ‘They would say I’m quite like a lucky person or someone who really wants to experience life to its fullest and do everything that it has to offer. Someone who is kind and fun and doesn’t take life too seriously.’
PROFESSION: Food writer
HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DESCRIBE YOU? ‘I think they would say I’m particularly sociable and very chatty. I mean, I’ll be honest, my parents would definitely say I’m a bit of a snob but I take it as a compliment. I think it means you’ve got high standards and good taste. They’d say I was quite a peculiar child.’
PROFESSION: NHS manager
WHAT MADE YOU APPLY TO BE A BIG BROTHER HOUSEMATE? ‘I love the programme. It is, for me, the ultimate reality TV show ever. I’ve got multiple sclerosis and so the reason why I never applied before is because I always saw those whacking great big stairs to get into the house. It just felt a little bit unachievable because for the first three years of my illness I was in a wheelchair. When I saw it was coming back and searching for real people from all walks of life, I thought, this is my year.’
