Big Brother 2013: New “Green” house confirmed as Secrets & Lies twist will lead to “tough tasks”


Big Brother is BACK, “but not as you know it”! With just 6 days to go until the first of two launches, Channel 5 has updated its official app with the first piece of Big Brother news!

As a Big Brother nerd, it really did get me excited. The most exciting piece of news is that the broadcaster has confirmed this year’s house is indeed “green” and will be all about “self-sufficiency and recycling”.

Rumour mill has gone into over-drive the last few weeks since it was rumoured that the house will be like we have never seen it before.

The app reads: “This house is all about self-sufficiency and recycling. This topical spin may mean that leaving housemates will have a new appreciation of the plight of the planet… or maybe a desire to plunge back into their creature comforts”.

As we already know, this year’s series has been subtitled “Secrets & Lies” and Channel 5 has already been playing tricks on us by releasing a secret eye and then going on to release the full thing.

“The new secrets & Lies’ angle will lead to twists, turns and tough tasks. No one in the House or watching at home should take things at face value” we’re told.

Not only that, as die-hard fans we already know that Brian has gone, but the app puts a better spin on it, “Dowling is dust”. Indeed, if you don’t know, have you been under a rock? The wonderfully amazing Emma Willis is taking over the main presenting duties on Channel 5 this year, as Rylan Clark and AJ Odudu take the honours on Bit on the Side.

Fear not Emma fans, aside from presenting the main show, she will also present Bit on the Side three days a week. This year, we also have the addition of two new shows. On a Sunday, Rylan will front a new Sunday lunchtime show, and there will be Bit on the Psyche – which will “feature the cream of the psychological community mediating on what’s going on beneath the House surface”.

Are you ready? I am! Big Brother: Secrets & Lies kicks off on 13th June at 9pm on Channel 5.
