  Fame Academy may be moving house
Updated 22 January 2004, 10.28
Fame Academy may be on the move
Fame Academy may have to move out of its north London mansion because it has been damaged during the series.

Camden Council, who have to give permission for Witanhurst House to be used aren't keen on doing so again.

Witanhurst is very old and has been named a "Grade II listed building" which means nothing in it can be changed without proper permission.

The council says the people behind Fame Academy didn't get that permission, so don't want them using the house again.

People living nearby aren't happy either because of the noise from helicopters used for filming, loud music played at night and the pong from generators.

A spokeswoman for Endemol - who make the show - said: "Throughout production of the Fame Academy series we took great care to ensure that the fabric of Witanhurst as a grade II* listed building was protected."

Of course they may not need to use the house again, because no one knows if a third series is definitely going ahead yet.
