The pop star made a surprise appearance on Britain's Celebrity Big Brother this week (ends19Aug16) in a segment featuring family greetings for the housemates.

Ariana Grande thrilled Celebrity Big Brother castmates in the U.K. by appearing in a good luck video she sent to her sibling Frankie.

Her 33-year-old half-brother, who is appearing on the hit show alongside Danity Kane's Aubrey O'Day and former model and pop star Samantha Fox, was not expecting to hear from his famous sister when she suddenly appeared onscreen.

Swishing her famous ponytail, Ariana, 23, cooed, "I just wanted to say how much I love you and how proud I am of you. I’m proud of you for being yourself. I miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you. I have so much to tell you. I have so much music to play you."

Frankie Grande flipped out when he saw the video, shrieking and shouting about his famous sister.

The pair's mother was just as excited, tweeting: "Ariana loves him so much... So happy he saw her message!! #Brother/sister."

This isn't the first time Frankie has been part of the Big Brother family - he appeared on the U.S. version of the show in 2014.

He has also starred in Broadway productions of Rock of Ages and Mamma Mia! and also appeared in his own one-man show. Frankie is also a YouTube personality, having launched his own channel in 2012, and he judged the 2015 season of America's Best Dance Crew and hosted a TV special, Worst.Post.Ever: With Frankie Grande, about the highs and lows of social media. In 2016, he co-hosted Style Code Live, a show focused on fashion and shopping on Amazon.
