The new stars of Big Brother better be on their best behaviour as it was revealed today a jail to punish those who step out of line will be used on the show.

Taking the form of a tiny claustrophobic area enclosed by metal bars, the mini prison will be situated in the garden.

And housemates better be ready to get green as emerged they will be growing their own food this year.

Producers said the 16 contestants will have to cultivate their own potatoes and carrots and season their food and herbs from the garden as they released the latest pictures from the house.

As well as having vegetable boxes, the new “green” version of the show will mean there is also a large recycling bin placed in the kitchen.
