Big Brother 10 – secrets revealed

Big Brother 10 launches tonight with 16 housemates, eight male and eight female, who will not be allowed access to the house until they have completed a series of demeaning tasks during the first three days.

Each task has been designed to challenge their social prejudices and some will require them to physically fight against one another in a bid to become a bone fide housemate.

Only once they have successfully completed a harrowing task they be allowed access to the ‘real’ Big Brother house. Until then they will only be able to access the garden.

Hopefuls won’t ever get access to their suitcases and will be forced to spend their first 7 nights sleeping in the garden. Contestants will be forced to bathe in a mud puddle in the garden which can only be filled by waiting for rain. They will be made to go to toilet in a hole-ridden bucket fixed to the middle of the garden. Their diet for the first few days will consist of nothing.

Sharon Power, one of the show’s executive producers, said: “After 10 years we gave up trying to come up with ways of surprising viewers and housemates. We ran out of any good ideas after series 3, so we just thought of creating an environment to strip the contestants of any remaining dignity whatsoever.”

The 16 contestants are the most diverse group yet, with hopeful housemates from a wide range of countries and backgrounds, from working class to lower-middle class, and from countries as far-ranging as Wales, England, Scotland and even Northern Ireland. The eldest contestant is 23 and the youngest is 18.

Big Brother kicks off on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm. Springwatch is on BBC2. And Channel 5 are probably showing some documentary.
