Here is the latest look at work on Big Brother 2016's new house in exclusive pics we've got our hands on.

Construction continues apace at Elstree Studios where builders are creating two new structures for the show.

The larger, snapped below, will become an extension to the main house and work is currently under-way inside of the new building getting it prepped for this year's housemates.

Outside, a new corridor is being added between the current house and extension.

Quite how the new area will be used by the housemates is not clear yet: It may just serve as extra room but some rumours have speculated it could become a whole 'second house' or even a so-called 'task arena'.

The other new building - seen in the background of the shot below - will become a new eviction studio for host Emma Willis, and this one will be able to be used in our typically wet and windy summers.

Other improvements being made to the set for the upcoming series include a new outdoor stage and seating area for the live audience.

Earlier this week we exclusively revealed some titbits about the revamp also being made to the existing house

A circular hot tub now sits in the centre of the garden while the 'tree house snug' has been pulled down.

It's understood that completion of work on the house will determine just when the new series starts next month.

Currently, Big Brother 2016 is set to launch around the middle of June on Channel 5.

Last week narrator Marcus Bentley filmed the first promo for the series while the new eye logo was revealed on Tuesday evening.
