Christina blushed and giggled, replying: ‘Yeah, OK’.
Katie was seething with jealousy as she watched her former lover cosy up to the stunning brunette flight attendant.
Katie, who dated Max eight years ago, told Big Brother: ‘The dynamic with Max and I is really off at the moment, and I think it’s a little weird to have this… flirtatious relationship that he is creating with Christina.’

‘It is hard for me because I haven’t got to chat with Max because he and Christina are together a lot. You know, we’ve got a lot of history,’ she added.
The chemistry between Max and Christina was evident to fellow housemates Renata and Melissa, who discussed the situation on the couch.
‘Listening to Max and Christina, they’re going to be strong together,’ Renata observed.

‘You can see it unfolding,’ Christina agreed, to which Renata replied: ‘You can’t hide it’.
Luckily for Katie, Max and Christina’s fledging romance was short-lived, as Max became the first housemate evicted just hours later.
Katie spoke candidly about her relationship with Max during an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Australia on Monday, revealing that they’d dated while competing in the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships many moons ago.

‘We dated when I was 20. Max was in the NZ team and I was in the Australian team,’ Katie revealed.
She said the pair have remained friends since ending their long distance relationship after less than a year.
‘Our teams versed each other. We did long distance, he lived in Queensland and I was in NSW for less than a year,’ she explained.
‘[We were] too young and distance was too hard. We have stayed good friends.’
Big Brother continues Tuesday at 7.30pm Seven
