The Hertfordshire-based surveillance house has undergone as dramatic make-over in anticipation of the forthcoming series.
Despite being locked away for weeks without contact with the outside world, the contestants will at least be living in plush surroundings, once Big Brother treats them to some luxuries. However, if all the other series are anything to go by, it will be anything but a comfortable experience for whoever agrees to dwell in the infamous abode.
The last season ended in police intervention after reality TV’s Farrah Abraham, 24, struck ‘Allo ‘Allo actress Vicki Michelle on the head with a champagne glass.
The incident happened in September during the Bit On The Side panel show in September and resulted in the actress being taken to hospital.
The incident took place after Aisleyne and Farrah had been arguing during the show over who had ‘anger issues’.
