Big Brother plan shocking house
'Big Brother' bosses are planning the ''most daring and shocking'' series yet.
The iconic house was unveiled yesterday (24.05.12) and the bedroom features 10 single and three double beds for the 16 contestants - one of whom is described as having a ''shocking sex secret'' - and two of the bigger furniture items have been cordoned off from the others and surrounded by mirrors and lighting, prompting speculation it has been designed to encourage housemates to have sex.
A source said: ''It's got to be Channel 5's most daring and shocking stunt.
''It's never been done before. The moral crusaders will be screaming to have the plug pulled from the show.''
This year's house has a Las Vegas meets Wild West theme, with pictures of scantily-clad show girls adorning the walls, along with murals of the famous Strip and the Grand Canyon.
The garden - which housemates will have to cross to enter the glass-walled bathroom, which boasts a shower big enough for two - is dotted with palm trees and features a large pool, hot tub and smoking area.
The living room is decorated in red, cream and brown and has golden light balls hanging from the ceiling, while the marble and bronze dining area boasts a huge table with two long benches on either side.
Keeping with the Las Vegas theme, the diary room door is adorned with silver slot machine coins.
Channel 5's head of factual entertainment Steve Gowans said: ''The house has been designed to transport the housemates into a world combining the exuberance of Las Vegas with the rugged Wild West.''
Despite the lavish surroundings, show chiefs insist housemates are not in for an easy time.
Executive producer Suzy Price warned: ''It may look like a summer paradise, but for housemates this will be no holiday.''
