Big Brother house under fire from locals as set lights up ahead of launch – but locals complain ‘I’m trying to sleep’ | The Sun

BIG BROTHER fans are eagerly waiting for the new series – but those that live close to the famous house are less happy with the reboot.

The ITV show has moved from its previous spot at Elstree Studios, where the house was actually demolished after the final series.

Filming will now take place at Garden Studios, which is a newly-built studio in West London.

But some neighbours are not impressed with the commotion and have complained about the bright lights coming from the house.

Taking to social media, one local person shared a photo of the Big Brother house along with shining beams shooting from it.

It could be seen for some distance, prompting one neighbour to write: "Oi Big Brother turn the lights down I’m trying to sleep."

But the person appeared to take it in good humour and added a laughing emoji at the end.

With the launch night for the new series less than one week away on Sunday October 8th, new hosts AJ Odudu and Will Bestadmit to feeling the weight of expectation on their shoulders.

AJ said: "The pressure is on, it's a big show and it's everybody's baby – like we all grew up watching it.

"It's had previous presenters that both Will and I love, adore and respect.

"They are the nation's sweethearts and we want to do everyone proud. We're not trying to mimic or imitate them in any way.

"So yeah, the pressure is on and that can be very daunting, but it's helped by the fact that I'm presenting with Will. He's a really good mate of mine and we've got each other's backs."

Will, for his part, says the excitement overrides any nerves. "I'm a huge fan of the show so I'm just so excited it's coming back. Also, to be doing it with AJ, who is such a good mate and who I find absolutely hilarious, that makes it feel less like work or scary, and just more like having fun."

Both insist they haven't seen the house or the housemates yet and are being kept in the dark until just before transmission.

"We have only seen what you guys have seen in terms of the drone shots of the house, "Will explained. "But what other show on TV has fans that are so committed, they'd fly a drone to get pictures of the house?"

AJ added: "We have no idea who is going in either but the housemates will reflect the UK in 2023."

Big Brother begins on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX. The launch night will also be aired on ITV1.
