Bomb Scare Update

Friday night's bomb scare was, thankfully, a false alarm. Here's a brief run-down of what happened:

Not long after 8pm and shortly before the 'evictee announcement' show was due to go live, a suspect package was located in the stage area of the studio after a Security chimp's sniffer dog indicated that it might contain explosives.

So, the housemates were swiftly corralled in the bedroom and the 8.30pm show was postponed.

The production team duly attempted to sort the issue, fully expecting to go live at 10pm, but in the end, Police and Army experts were called-in and ordered a full evacuation of the area.

Executive Producer Gigi Eligoloff entered the bedroom personally to inform the housemates of the situation and to reassure them that they were safe. But far from being worried, the shocked seven 'whooped' with excitement as they were ushered out through the fire exit!

Held in another part of the complex for around 4 hours, the housemates had access to music but were not permitted to communicate with anyone from the outside world.

They returned to the House at approximately 1am, with Gos saying, "Can you believe it? We went behind the scenes. We were out of the House man!"

It transpires that the package was simply a box containing electrical cabling equipment but, with a crowd and crew running into the thousands, they simply could not afford to take the risk.

Fans were therefore sent home, although no provisions were made for them to return for the rescheduled Saturday night shows.

As a consequence of Channel 4's very scant details of what was going on, tons of people hit the internet at the same time to get some info, consequently locking-up every Big Brother site on the net.

There has been widespread speculation today that this was a blatant publicity stunt to create interest and hype for the struggling show.

If so, it worked!
