House Flood Causes Evacuation

The Big Brother House Flooded Tonight And The Housemates Were Evacuated

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.
