Producers are lining up male twins and secret relatives as housemates for Big Brother 2013: Secrets & Lies, it has been claimed.
A show source let slip to Digital Spy that the brothers could be among the faces taking part in the show this summer, and teased that ‘they might not be the only housemates related’.
However, the insider added that they would enter the house together as one housemate rather than take part in the ‘twin twist’, a task that originated in the American version of the show in which one twin moves in, before regularly swapping places with the other in secret.
Twins have taken part in three previous editions of the show – Sam and Amanda during the eighth civilian series, and Jedward and Karissa and Kristina in the eighth and ninth Celebrity series respectively.
Previously it was claimed that Irish model Hazel O’Sullivan is in the running for the new run, which launches this Thursday at 9.00pm on Channel 5.
Yesterday, Channel 5 released pictures of the show’s brand new house – flick through them below:
