'Big Brother' 2016 Set For Two Houses Twist, With 'The Others' Living In New Extension

'The game is changing… and The Others are coming.'

With the new series of 'Big Brother' less than a week away, bosses have announces details of the show's most ambitious ever twist ahead of its return.

For the first time in the show's 16-year history, two separate houses will be used when the housemates enter the compound on Tuesday night (7 June).

One set of contestants will reside in the main 'Big Brother' house, while a group known ominously as 'The Others' will live in the new extension.

'The Others' will spend their time on the show conspiring to target and take down their rivals, as they attempt to steal their place in their place in the main house and win the £100,000 prize fund.

While the main house will seemingly be unaware that 'The Others' even exist, what both residences will not know is that some of them are already connected to each other.

"These connections could turn both houses upside down," a press release from Channel 5 read. "But what are these connections and how will Big Brother use them to keep everyone on their toes?"

The twist had been widely speculated by fans, after it was revealed bosses have built a 700 sq metre extension to the compound at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood.

The Daily Star previously claimed the twist could see family members pitted against each other, with a source telling the paper: “The idea would be to have a daughter in one house and her mum in the other but not tell either of them. It would be a big stunt but producers are determined to make it the best series ever.”

Fans have also been told to expect the "game is changing", with further details about the twist expected to be announced on launch night.
