Quick Dave, build an ark or something!
Last night, at around 9pm, the Big Brother House fell victim
to a severe storm, which saw water flooding into the House
via the air conditioning units. The nine housemates were duly
evacuated to a portacabin and subsequently a Green room, where
they continued to be filmed and were chaperoned at all times.
Later in the evening they were moved to the large Task room,
which had been hastily transformed by the production team
into a bedroom. The housemates remained in high spirits throughout,
with Sam joking that he'd won the show and requesting his
£100k pay cheque. Some housemates even indulged in a
pillow fight later on.
Today, the living room, bedroom and Diary Room remain out-of-bounds,
as experts attempt to extract all the water and dry-out the
rooms with specialist equipment. The housemates are still
able to use the kitchen area, and the wicker snug has been
converted into a makeshift Diary Room.
After going offline last night, the online live feed was
switched back on this morning, and the show's Top Bods hope
that everything will be back to normal by the end of the day.
Tonight's Channel 4 highlights show – Wednesday the
18th of August 2010 – has been extended to 90 minutes
to cover yesterday's dramatic events.
