Channel 7 is set to introduce a brand new house for BIG BROTHER VIP as production moves to a new part of Sydney
As production gears up for the next series of Big Brother, which will be a celebrity edition, TV Blackbox can reveal construction of a brand new house has already begun in Sydney Olympic Park at Homebush.
Channel 7 confirmed the news through a spokesperson, saying:
“Construction is now underway, in a COVID safe manner, on the new custom built house”
Production company Endemol Shine Australia was forced to find a new location after the National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW declined to renew the lease for the site that was used for the first two seasons of the revised format.
As we first reported back in December, the decision not to renew Endemol Shine’s lease was made due to concerns for local wildlife. The production brought with it a significant amount of people which displaced some animals from their natural habitat.
The new house is significantly different to the current house and production is set to start soon. Sources tell TV Blackbox the celebrity cast is locked in and producers believe viewers will genuinely be excited by the VIPs taking part.
Host Sonia Kruger recently revealed on KIIS FM:
“I can just tell you there are some extraordinary internationals who will be taking part”
The new purpose built house has had DA approval from the local council and we are told viewers can expect a very different feel in the new location.
