The new series of Big Brother on Channel 5 will reportedly feature the biggest house in the show's 10 history, it has been claimed According to the Daily Star Sunday today, the famous Big Brother house at Esltree has been gutted and rebuilt to ensure a truly new chapter for the reality series.

Channel 5 picked up the format earlier this year after Channel 4 axed what was once the UK's most popular reality series last summer after 10 years on the box.

It's reported that production staff have been working on renovating the Big Brother house, set at Esltree Television Studios in Hertfordshire, since April - and it still won't be complete for two weeks, just days before the series begins next month.


A show insider revealed to the tabloid today: "The house was completely gutted and it’s being given a new look. Fans will be really impressed."

Around 30 portacabins have also been set up around the house, which will allow for a team of more than a hundred to work on the show 24/7 throughout the series.

"It’s an area especially for Big Brother staff because they will be working on the show constantly to make sure fans are kept updated on all the dramas," the insider added.

The news comes as Channel 5 start airing teasers for the new show, featuring the brand new Big Brother 2011 eye.

Big Brother starts next month on its new home of Channel 5 with a celebrity version followed by a new run of the public series.
