The Big Brother house is now gone for good after demolition work to remove it was completed.

Workers moved in almost as soon as the last series finished to begin pulling down the house, as well as its accompanying outdoor studio.

New pictures show the once sprawling set of buildings gone completely, with an empty slab of concrete left in their place.

But before the house was bulldozed, Big Brother host Emma got the chance to pinch a few pieces of memorabilia for herself.

She recently confessed to OK! Magazine: "I went on a right robbing spree! The golden cockerel, which is now outside my front door. The badger behind the sofa in the living room is also in my house."

Emma added: "There were lots of animals around the Big Brother house – we've got a couple of little squirrels in our kitchen and the gold three wise monkeys as well."

Big Brother started on UK TV in 2000, originally airing on Channel 4.

It moved to Channel 5 in 2011 but the broadcaster announced in September last year that it had decided not to renew the show beyond 2018.

The latest season wrapped up back in November and now its famous house has gone.

“The production company who make Big Brother own the house, but Elstree Studios own the land, so the house has to be taken down now the show has been cancelled,” a source told The Sun newspaper previously of the planned demolition.

They added: “It’s not the end for the show and everyone is convinced it’ll find a new home on another channel, but the house has to leave the site.”

Although there's been talk of the show moving to a new channel once more, nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal tweeted last year (Sunday, November 25): "Not BB yet but u know we’re working on it #SaveBBUK"

Speaking at the time, he said: "My brain just doesn't understand that it's not coming back. To me, I can't understand that I have presented it for the last time. It's going to be majorly missed."

He told the Daily Mail newspaper: "And trust me, I am doing everything I can do in my power to get it back.

"I can't imagine Big Brother not being around. It has shaped my life. I am really in a world of denial about this. I want it back. Many people do."

The current Big Brother house in Elstree has been home to the show since 2002, with the first two series airing from a different site in Bow, London.
