Celebrity Big Brother House In Photos

by | 30th, December 2009

THOSE all-important first photos of the Celebrity Big Brother house are yours to gaze upon. The show’s producer, Shirley Jones (look out for her on Reality TV Producers – a fly-on-the-wall show following Big Brother staff looking for work and a spot on 100 Greatest Big Brother Moments) says the place is inspired by Dante’s Inferno.

Like Celebrity Big Brother, Dante’s inferno is something everyone has heard of but very few people have bothered to look at. It’s fitting. Says Jones:

“The famous line from Dante’s Inferno is ‘Abandon hope all ye who enter here’ which has inspired much of what we have done to the house, particularly the entrance which is dark and cavernous with flaming walls.”

And get a load of those Diamante cushions. And Dante is not all: Says Jones:

“As well as Dante we have been hugely influenced by Sartre’s line ‘Hell is other people’.”

But overall it’s been inspired by a later 19th century brothel and the priapic visions of an adolescent boy…
