The Big Brother house is set to undergo a major redesign for Celebrity Big Brother this summer.

The transformation started before this year's series ended when Big Brother kicked the then remaining housemates out of one of the two bedrooms.

Then just minutes after the group left on final night builders were inside hard at work.

They've just four days to transform the house from its current state for the Celebrity series which begins on Tuesday night.

Channel 5 say the revamped house will become "the country's top celeb retreat".

They continued: "The Big Brother house is undergoing a complete redesign ready for its new star guests. It will become a high end retreat inspired by celeb hotel hang-outs.

"But while the celebs kick back and let their hair down, Big Brother never takes a day off – after all, he wants to ensure that the celebrities will have an experience that they will NEVER forget!"
