THE first photos of the last ever Big Brother house have been revealed.
The new civilian series kicks off tonight, hours after Channel 5 confirmed it was axing the show and its Celebrity counterpart.
The 2018 series is taking the show back to its “original social experiment roots” by casting housemates from all walks of life – several of whom were leaked by a fan site earlier this week.
In keeping with this theme, the house has been designed to remind contestants they are playing a game,
with a gaming table, maze artwork and quirky Tetris designs on the walls.
The pad is also decorated with numerous propoganda-style images, including a pointing figure labelled “Big Brother Needs You” and a painting of a rat in the bathroom beside the words “Wash your back”.
Producers want the art to remind the housemates they are being watched 24/7, and that their activities are being dictated by an unseen power.
Meanwhile the bedroom follows a prison style, with dusty grey beds and bright orange decor, in order to instill a sense of control in the contestants.
The new photos come after Channel 5 confirmed it was axing the series and its Celebrity counterpart seven years.
A statement released to The Sun Online read: “The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last – of either celebrity or civilian versions – on Channel 5.
“We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.
“We’d also like to thank our brilliant presenters – Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side – for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments.
