  We look inside the Fame Academy mansion
Updated 02 October 2002, 18.48
The Fame Academy in north London
By Ian Youngs
For CBBC Newsround Online at the Fame Academy


The 12 lucky Fame Academy students are about to go into their specially converted luxury mansion on Friday.

The second largest house in London after Buckingham Palace will be their home while the wannabes chase stardom.

How posh is it? Well, the Queen has danced in the ballroom and the singer Sting lives next door!

  Click here for a sneaky peek inside!

Outside the house a security guard sits on a chair and signs warn you away from trying to sneak in or the dogs will get you...

The grand hallway leads into the front room, which has dark wood walls filled with gold discs and pics of legends like the Beatles.

The atmospheric room has a guitar and a saxophone in glass cases.

This will be where Marli, Ainslee, Pippa and co will sing, chat and, most likely, cry on the posh purple sofas.

Run of the grounds

Unlike another reality show - Big Brother the contestants won't be locked up and forced to sit around all day.

They can go into the mansion's huge grounds, go to the TV studio every Friday and make one phone call per week.
