  'Warm and cosy' BB4 house unveiled!
Updated 01 May 2003, 15.13
Big Brother 4 house living room
Summer is almost here, which can only mean one thing - Big Brother 4!

The ultimate reality TV show hits our screens in under four weeks and we've had our first peek at the new house.

The programme makers have decided they want to make the housemates feel "cosy" this time round.

Fact File
Big Brother
70,000 prize again
Six girls and six boys
Weekly team tasks plus Saturday night live task
10,000 hopefuls applied for the show
Final 50 have been chosen

The new house has been totally re-done for the next series, so it's much more spacey and futuristic with lots of rounded edges.

In BB fanatic Avid Merrion's words, it will be "warm"!

And there won't be any silly gimmicks like a rich and poor divide.

Last year, the house was split by bars with the housemates competing to be in the plush bit.

There's a huge grassy bit for lots of fun and a big wooden shelter bit to sit under and be sociable.

The makers hope the re-design will mean people work more as a team, unlike last year's lot. The team weekly task will come back which will help them to work together too.

Secret contestants?

And they say there will be a few surprises.

But they wouldn't say anything about rumours of secret "attics" with stand-by contestants in them!

Big Brother 4 starts at the end of May, lasts for 64 days and will be presented - as ever - by Davina McCall.
