  Big Brother 4 has started
Updated 23 May 2003, 21.27
The 12 housemates meet for the first time
They're in!

The 12 Big Brother contestants have started 10 weeks of life under the lens.

And they're all quite young, so there should be loads of fun and gossip. Hurray!

But they got an early shock. The contestants will all have to nominate one housemate each tonight!

Two Anouskas!

The housemates are a mixed bunch too.

There's glamorous Anouska, a nursery assistant from Manchester. At 20, she's the baby of the house.

But bizarrely there's another Anouska too, who luckily prefers to be called Nush. She's a 23-year-old student.

Fact File
BB facts
33 different cameras watch the housemates
40 microphones around the house
50 monitors sit in the BB control room
50 kms of cable used in building the BB house
Over 2,000 microphone batteries will be used by housemates
10,000 hours of tape will be recorded

And there's hunky Federico, a 23-year-old waiter from Glasgow.

Channel 4 did well keeping them secret. Although papers leaked the identities of 12 possible housemates, they turned out to be the wrong ones.

The real 12 will now start living the BB life.

The housemates will have to do a live challenge every Saturday night to win treats. And they'll have to nominate two people to face the public vote every week.
