The Big Brother Bedsit was a secret room in the Big Brother 5 House. This was the first series of Big Brother in which housemates were given a fake eviction and the first to use a secret room, excluding Big Brother 4 where the hidden room was revealed to all housemates early on. The Bedsit was also used six years later in Ultimate Big Brother.


Big Brother 5[]

The first housemates to become aware of its existence were Emma Greenwood and Michelle Bass. Following what the rest of the housemates believed to be their eviction, Emma and Michelle were guided silently to the Bedsit where Big Brother gave them further information. Big Brother told the pair that they had not been evicted and instead would live in the Bedsit for four days in secret. During their stay in the Bedsit, both had access to headsets and a television screen used in order to view and listen to the House and the housemates live. Emma and Michelle were able to listen to conversations about themselves.

The Diary Room was accessible from the Bedsit for Emma and Michelle to make visits to speak to Big Brother and to make their nominations. They would also visit the Diary Room to decide who should receive a prank from Big Brother. After their stay in the Bedsit, the "evictees" had to leave and re-enter the House via the Diary Room in a surprise return. Their return to the House sparked the infamous Fight Night.

On Day 3 of Ultimate Big Brother the live feed briefly skipped to a secret room in the House, revealing what looks to be like a mock-up of the Big Brother 5 Bedsit. On Day 4, unknown to the other housemates, Big Brother 5 contestants Michelle Bass and Victor Ebuwa entered the new Bedsit.
