In pictures: Big Brother house

The bath

Channel 4 reality show Big Brother has opened the doors to its redesigned house. The centrepiece is the bath, placed amongst multi-coloured lighting panels in the living room.

The fridge

The fridge has been dragged out of the kitchen and built into the back wall of the garden area.

The chicken

In a nod to the livestock that used to be kept in the Big Brother compound, designers have placed a Damien Hirst-style pickled rubber chicken in the living area.

The kettle

Producers have tantalisingly locked the kettle and toaster in a clear Perspex box. Only Big Brother can decide when to release the catch.

The telephone

A 1970s-style telephone lurks by the sink in a kitchen which features a hotplate, but no cooker.

The presenters

Dermot O'Leary and Davina McCall return to introduce this year's housemates on 30 May.
