Big Brother has confirmed a rumour that it will attempt to fool the housemates tomorrow night into believing there is a second house full of rival housemates.
On Sunday, as Sonia wraps up her final live cross to the House, our very competent crew will intentionally make a mistake. The HMs will be watching the screen, waving farewell to Sonia and expecting the plasma to fade to black as usual. Only this time, they’ll see something different. Something that will look like the biggest mistake ever. Except it’s not.
Sonia will say goodbye, then slightly turn and address the crowd. The HMs will wonder why she is still talking before suddenly, Sonia will do another live cross. Except she’s crossing to “the House.” And “the House” ain’t theirs.
With this the live feed to the house will be cut -just enough (it’s hoped) to convince the housemates there is a second house .
There is also speculation audience members will hold fake signs for other fake housemates, who inadvertently become visible.
It’s a dastardly plan, and if it comes off it should be a lot of fun.
