If you've been out of the loop, Big Brother is set to undergo a major overhaul this summer and the house is one of the things being radically changed.

In fact, it's the biggest update to the house in more than a decade with a brand new extension to the set.

Work on a second, two story addition to the main house has been under way for a few weeks now and building is racing along as our exclusive pictures show.

It's still not quite clear how the extension will fit into the series, with rumours of it forming a whole 'second house' as well as talk of it becoming a 'task arena'.

While the Big Brother start date may not be for a good few months yet, work on the new series isn't limited to the house.

Speaking to I Talk Telly at last Wednesday's Royal Television Society Awards, Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark revealed that the housemates would be cast THIS week.

"I’ve got a meeting next week where I believe we are picking the housemates," he teased. "I got to help last year as well for the celeb and the civilian one."

Rylan claimed: "The housemates I want to see, are the housemates everyone at home wants to see!"

Those that end up inside the newly designed Big Brother house could be in for a shock, with Rylan suggesting that the revamped show will be 'totally different' to the past 15 years.

Big Brother airs on Channel 5.
