Big Brother 3 (2002)/Celebrity Big Brother 2 (2002)

For CBB2 the diary room had some bits of tinsel...

The second bedroom used for the BB5 army task was accessable in CBB3.

Big Brother 7 (2006)/Celebrity Big Brother 5 (2007)
'Inside out' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Secret room(s): The Golden Housemate's bedroom and the House Next Door used 3 times during BB7 (when the new housemates joined after Aisleyne's fake eviction, the prison task and when the ex housemates returned) and once during CBB5 (the masters and servants task).
Notes: For CBB5 the outdoor kitchen area and dining table were brought inside.
The BB7 pool was replaced with a hot tub for CBB5 whilst the 'bridge to nowhere' was fitted with heated seating for the celeb version.
The BB7 bathroom was redecorated and made more private for the celebrities.
The same diary room and chair for BB7 were used in CBB5 but a yellow light was also installed...

Notes: This was the first house to feature a smoking area.
There was also a secret washing machine hidden in the garden but it was never found. Carole wept.

The BB8 caravan was such a fail! All I remember it being used for is Charley and Brians little session that they had.

Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack (2008)
'E4/Banksy' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Secret room(s): There were some staris that lead to an upstairs room John used for a task.
Notes: The space used for the Half Way House, Australian room and various tasks for BB8 returned for a few more tasks in Celebrity Hijack.
The pool from BB8 was replaced with a hot tub.
The bedroom was completely different from the one in BB8. It also had access to a gym.
The bath tub was moved to its appropriate place in the bathroom whilst the fridge and oven were moved in to the kitchen.
The diary room chair from BB8 returned but was lit with purple lighting whilst there were purple paint splodges round the living room.

Big Brother 9 (2008)/Celebrity Big Brother 6 (2009)
'Shattered' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Notes: This was the first house to have an offical task room.
This house was divided via a heaven/hell divide similar to BB3's rich/poor twist. The bathroom, luxury bedroom and most of the garden (including pool) belonged to the heaven side, whereas the kitchen, B Block bedroom and jail end of the garden were on the hell side.
For CBB6 2 more bedrooms were installed. One for LaToya Jackson coming from the B Block bedroom, and one for the Head of House by the luxury bedroom.
The blue bathroom was repainted purple for CBB6.
The BB9 garden was painted blues and yellows for CBB6 whilst the pool was replaced with carousel horses, the jail was made larger, and the nomination pod used in BB9 was replaced with a heated seating area.
The overall series theme of CBB6 was 'celebrity' so the CBB6 house added a few stars to the carpets and wall pannels.

Big Brother 10 (2009)
'Basic' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Notes: This house was sh!t. But I'll let you decide.
For the first time every area in the house was contained within its own respective room e.g. the kitchen was in its own room, the dining room was in its very own room and the living area was in its own room.
Supposedly several features and rooms were symbolic or representative of previous BB series which would fit in with the BB10 thumb print/identity logo. Perhaps the fact it shares an almost identical layout to BB9's house is actually a stroke of genius by mimicking what BB2 was to BB1? Or perhaps it was just credit crunched and/or lazy. You decide.

Celebrity Big Brother 7 (2010)
'Hell/Circus' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Secret room(s): The area that used to be the BB10 living room was used as a reward room for Dane and Jonas.
Notes: This was the first celebrity house to feature a complete design overhaul from the previous regular series.

Big Brother 11 (2010)/Ultimate Big Brother (2010)
'Circus/Heaven' theme, designed by Patrick Watson. Elstree compound.
Secret room(s): The mole hole in BB11 which was later used as the bedsit and BB5 style diary room in UBB.
Notes: The BB11 shower was frosted over for the privacy of the celebrity and ex housemates in UBB.

I've decided I'm gonna vote for BB4.

I always loved the BB6 house but it lacks a bathroom frankly. Always liked BB9's but it seemed a bit too tacky and out there at the same time. CBB7 and BB11's were both fun but a bit busy. And I think I've come to like the BB:CH house for what it was. BUT I still think Piggot and Blee designed the best houses and the ones you'd most want to live in. So between BB2 and BB4 I'll go with BB4. :D

Oh, and I think I prefered the HND to the actual BB7 house - both when it was used for Aisleyne and when it was re-used for the ex HMs lol

If I narrow it down to 1, CBB7 pips it for me. Such an amazing house, so different to anything we had before. Actually, the whole series was fantastic, the eye, the opening titles, etc :)

Either you just through that in there for the sake of having something else on your list of reasons in favour of CBB7 or you forgot how ridiculously awful and slow the titles were.

No way.

When BB11's House Pictures first hit the internet that year, literally about 95% of Big Brother forums all agreed and initially thought that it was the best house we've ever had, ever.

And It could of been - it's just the house looked horrendous on screen and even so, the producers just ruined it [like they did with everything that year] and had to go and make the house look dirty and wooden, rather than Glassy and Sexy.

Of the C4 era, 7 is definitely the best overall house, but 6 has the best room of all time with the lounge.

I liked 13, 15 and 16's houses on C5 but I think 15 is probs my favourite
