CBB2012; We’re Back!

Big Brother Reality Gallery

It was so nice to be back. With Christmas and New Year firmly done and dusted it was time to knuckle down and get Celebrity Big Brother 2012 on the road…

… but at this stage of the game the Reality Gallery was completely closed down! Within minutes of Big Brother 2011 finishing, a ‘de-rig’ operation went into effect. Cameras come out, lights are taken down, property is removed and locked away. In typical engineering fashion, the 2011 derig was going on before we were even off-air.

And so the Reality Gallery was a shell. A blank canvas, if you will. The monitors were ready to be filled with camera feeds, the buttons were ready to be tallied with the cameras and the billions of HD back-up tapes were ready to be labelled (every single second of the house is recorded onto back-ups for compliance reasons and just in case there is a failure somewhere in an edit suite).

In the coming days the crews will be back in to re-rig the house with the new cameras and an army of people will get the house completely revamped. Bring. It. On.

The final showdown came between Aaron Allard and Jay KcKray… and with the most votes for the series, Aaron became the winner of Big Brother 2011. And Jay was evicted.

With only three housemates left in the Big Brother house, the next eviction was a shocker. Alex (who was hotly tipped to win) was next out leaving Aaron and Jay as the final two:

It seemed 4th and 5th palce was always going to be between Tom O’Connell and Louise Cliffe. With Tom having been evicted the night before, Louise was next to walk the Big Brother walk:


It's Louise!
