Tasteless … tacky bathroom with David model and swan taps
Yep, love it or loathe it, the endless TV marathon/drivel (delete where applicable) that is Big Brother returns to our screens on June 5.
And a first glimpse at the new set proves that all that glitters definitely isn’t gold.
The garish, bling-ridden bathroom looks like the place Liberace went to die.
Festooned with gilded swan taps, flowers, champagne bottles and a bronze cast of Michaelangelo’s David, the entire room is done up with a marble effect last seen in Dorian’s Chigwell home in Birds Of A Feather.
Golden swan tap
What I can say? HORRIBLE!!!
Eyes-spy … new entrance for BB9
House arrest … cell-like rooms
The housemates will get another shock when they see the shared bedroom, which looks more like an Eastern Bloc jail cell.
It has “locker” walls and eight beds shared between 12 housemates, each kitted out with scratchy wool blankets.
With any luck the grime-glitz contrast will drive inmates mad within days.
In another twist, show bosses have built the bathroom next to the lounge.
A source tells us: “There’s a huge window between the bathroom and the lounge, so you’ll be able to see everyone. It’s going to be highly pervy.”
The finalists were picked late last week.
