Look Inside The Revamped Big Brother House

Big Brother will be back soon and journalists have just been invited to take a look around the revamped house. Here's what things are like for 2003:

Inside, space has been cut back to around two-thirds of the floor space used during Big Brother 3, partly to make things more cosy. Last year, the planned 'glass bar divide' meant that two separate living areas had to be configured, making the living area quite sprawling.

In-keeping with producers' plans for more romance, intimacy and conversation in-place of BB3's bitching and arguing, gone are the harsh reds and metallic feel this time around. In comes a more laid-back 'cocoon-like' atmosphere, with more curves and pastel colours used throughout.

Light-coloured flooring is covered by circular 'fluffy' rugs and the new turquoise sofas are decorated with brown cushions. With the interior looking simple but at the same time a little 'space-age', Endemol big-knob Phil Edgar-Jones prefers to call the all-new look, "Natural and contemporary."

The interior layout has been totally changed for BB4, with the two bedrooms now situated right next door to each other. Only one bedroom was accessible to visiting journos for now and was all decked-out in a smart purple and greeny-blue colour scheme. There were just 6 single beds.

The kitchen area has been moved further forward, nearer to the sofa area and now features white surfaces in place of the 'cold' stainless steel from last year. In a bid to encourage more bonding and chat, designer Markus Blee (who's worked on every series so far) has tried hard to create a more 'friendly' atmosphere to the house.

The Store Room and Diary Room have also moved, but overweight Security men were stood-guard outside the latter, almost like it contained the Crown Jewels. So, no chance of a sneaky-peek at the colour of the new diary room chair then. As always, that information is highly Classified!

Of course, one-way mirrors still surround the entire perimeter of the living area, but new 'full-length' mirrors apparently allow for lower camera angles. We can only assume that Big Bro is hoping to catch the housemates 'in action', canoodling on the floor?

Outside, a large wooden canopy stands next to the 5m x 5m hexagonal swimming pool, with beanbags sat nearby. Arghhh, memories of Sandy and his early morning 'swim-walking' antics start to flood back with the mere mention of that pool! Let's hope the housemates will make more use of both the pool and the garden this year; the main point of introducing the heat-retaining cedar canopy.

Space in the garden has been maximised to facilitate more activities this summer, with a smaller area allocated to the chicken coop. 7 new 'chucks follow in the footsteps of famous fowl such as Marjorie and Big Red to take up the egg-laying duties.

So, that's it for now. You won't actually get to see the house for real for another few weeks yet. In the meantime however, check-out the photos we've provided below to whet your appetite. Oh, and if you can't quite remember what the house was like last year, click here for some pics.
