Big Brother 2016 housemates move to the second house after flooding

The Big Brother 2016 housemates have moved into The Other House after flooding in the main residence.

Major storms at the Big Brother set in Elstree, North London saw the ceiling break and water pour into the living area.

It's an almost identical repeat of a flood that brought chaos to the show back in the Channel 4 era in 2010 when water burst into the house from above.

On Twitter, one user quipped: "Looks like cowboy builders on that new roof. House flooded again. Have @#bbuk kept the warranty somewhere safe? #bbuk"

As the rain came down onto the compound yesterday (Thursday), the housemates first found themselves celebrating the torrential down pour by jumping around in the garden and even diving in the pool.

But things took a dramatic turn when the ceiling burst open and suddenly the house had a brand new pool in the living area.

Big Brother acted quickly by containing housemates in the bedroom and they've since been removed from the house entirely and went on to move into the unoccupied other house.

A spokesperson for Channel 5 said: "Due to the severe weather conditions, the Big Brother House experienced a flood.

"The Housemates have been moved into The Other House temporarily. Everyone is okay.”

The housemates were still in the other house as of yesterday evening but it's not clear if they had to spend the night or if they will still be in their temporary accommodation when it comes to the live eviction this evening.

The drama from Big Brother's latest flood will air in Friday night's highlights from 9PM tonight on Channel 5.
