Celeb BB ‘basement’, launch twist revealed

Channel 5 has released pictures of a mysterious ‘basement’ in the new Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house, in which some of the housemates will be forced to live in squalor!

Instead of enjoying the usual champagne meet-and-greet, this time an unlucky few will instead face having to move in to the dark and grimy slum, which is littered with debris.

It is not yet clear how these celebs will be chosen, but Big Brother promises that the twist ‘will divide them and test them like never before’.

Despite its name, the basement appears to be the large task room, located off the garden.

The Daily Star previously reported that the new line-up – rumoured to include the likes of Steps singer Claire Richards, Neighbours actor Ryan Moloney and X Factor contestant Rylan Clark – would be ‘put through hell’ in the ‘toughest series yet’.

Full details are expected to be announced in tonight’s opening show, at 9.00pm on Channel 5. In the mean time, you can have a sneak peek at the basement below:

    It’s… it’s a Have Not Room. God damnit.

    Seriously, this looks like something the BBUS producer, Alison Grodner, started a few years back and it was as uninteresting then as it is now.

    Disappointing.

    …so Rich Side/Poor Side. Again.

    Still, at least “We’re all in this together” kind of threatens to be satire.

    Hm…kinda like the Master/Servant task in Celebrity Big Brother 2007. All I’m hoping is that it’s not like Turf Wars or the White Room… :conf:

    Given their fondness of subliminal messages, I thought I’d send them one back.
