I'M COMING TO WRECK YOU
Big Brother house pictured being torn down and removed from Elstree Studios after 18 years

All the celebrity rows couldn't destroy it - but it seems the bulldozers can, with work on dismantling the studios of the iconic show already underway

LOOK away, Big Brother lovers - because the iconic house is being torn down and dismantled after the show was axed earlier this year.

The house has been at Elstree Studios for 18 years, but is finally being taken apart this week in the wake of Channel 5's announcement that they will longer air it.


The Sun Online’s exclusive pictures show the stage – where evictions take place – is rapidly being dismantled by workers at the studio.

The house’s pool is still full and the beanbags from the final series still lie in the garden, but insiders tell us the whole house will be taken part in the coming weeks.

A source said: “The production company who make Big Brother own the house, but Elstree Studios own the land, so the house has to be taken down now the show has been cancelled.

“It’s not the end for the show and everyone is convinced it’ll find a new home on another channel, but the house has to leave the site it’s stood on for the last 18 years."


The insider added: “It’s the end of an era and a lot of fans will be sad to see it go.”

The famous house has witnessed no end of celebrity drama in its long life, from Kim Woodburn being bundled out of its back door during a row, to Megan McKenna's drunken meltdown.

Its bathroom has also played host to endless romances, including Stephen Bear and Chloe Khan snogging in the bath, Steph Davis cheating with Jeremy McConnell, and Lewis Bloor and Marnie Simpson's naked shower scene.

And, most iconic of all, it was home to the "David's dead" debacle where an epic misunderstanding led to Tiffany Pollard believing David Gest had perished in the house.


Big Brother's final host Emma Willis was in tears as she bid farewell to the famous house on the last edition of the show.

However, Rylan Clark-Neal vowed on Big Brother's Bit On The Side that the show "will be back" amid rumours that Netflix bosses were holding secret talks to buy the show.

Speaking to the camera, Rylan was visibly emotional as he told viewers: "That's all we have time for tonight, and for the series... And forever. It is sadly time for us to say a final farewell."

However, he added: "I am sure the powers that be are trying to make sure that this show comes back, and believe me, me, Marcus, and Emma will make sure that Big Brother will get back to you."

The Sun revealed that Endemol, who own the show's format, will sit down to discuss a deal with the company imminently.

An insider explained: "Netflix could be the saviours of Big Brother — the news fans have wanted to hear since Channel 5 made the announcement.

"Executives at Endemol are meeting with Netflix early next week. Of course it’s still early days.

"Streaming sites have a lot of money so it’s an option they’re looking at."

Big Brother aired on Channel 4 from 2000 until 2010, with Channel 5 taking over as host channel from 2011.

They're removing all the exterior stage properly this time - usually they just take off the screens. The house will get gutted then and the shells will remain. Endemol got the lease for the land/house renewed for another three years so technically it can remain - it depends on their plans. Just because they have the lease, doesn't mean they'll keep it there.

To think they spent all that money on the extension only for the show to be axed two years later.

Not really anything being torn down..

Apart from the arena, which if it went to Netflix would of course be changed.
The photo of that man pulling a few wires could be anyone

Somehow I am sure this article is misleading, I know Channel 5 still owns BBUK until December, its only showing the main stage being dismantled.

Wheres the bulldozer ?

If Ben Frow grew a pair of brains these pics wouldnt even be published.

No, the house has been where it always has been since 2002. I’m pretty sure this is the first time in offseason where they’ve completely gutted the exterior staging aside from when redesigning it.

I’m guessing those Netflix talks haven’t progressed well if they’re vacating it completely?

Did they gut it like this in the interim between C4 and C5?

It needs fresh studios/modelling anyway if it came back - for the best.

The new channel 5 one looked good.. but hey that shipped sailed.

And what was the point in wasting that coswolloping amount of money on a new house only to be used once and then used as a task room.

Channel 4 pulled it off much better.

Oh maybe this? Would a blank slate be more appealing to a buyer, I wonder?

If it had a bigger crowd space it would’ve been better, but yeah it was pretty good.

The only downside is with the screens/graphics EVERYWHERE, if the eye/graphics of a season were awful (like BB18) there was no escaping it

Definitely, it would need major reformatting to be sold to a larger audience again
