Main Article:Dead Set Wikia.

Dead Set is a BAFTA nominated horror drama based around the Big Brother House. The first five episodes of the drama, created by English writer, Charlie Brooker, were first aired on the 27th of October 2008 on E4. The series was repeated on Channel 4 from the 6th to the 8th of January 2009, in three hour long episodes.


During the eviction of Pippa (Kathleen McDermott), one of the Big Brother housemates, an infected security guard stumbles through the Big Brother eviction crowd and dies due to his injuries. He quickly reanimates - and starts to devour crowd members and housemates, spreading the infection and turning everyone, including Davina into a zombie.

The zombies quickly take over and run riot through the studios, killing all of the crew and ex-housemates. As chaos rages outside, the remaining housemates continue to party inside the House, completely unaware of the events occurring outside the house and, for the time being, completely safe from the grasp of the bloodthirsty zombies.

Things get tense when it turns out the housemates, discover that the ex-housemates have been infected, and it's up to the surviving housemates to defend themselves. However, the housemates start to whittle to four, with two being infected by the zombies breaking through into the house, with Kelly taking refuge in the diary room while Space makes it to the production gallery but is bitten by a zombified Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace. Able to talk to each other, Kelly tells Space that (as the final surviving housemate) he has won that series of Big Brother. Wanting to go down fighting, Kelly gives Space an emotional goodbye and heads back out into the horde of zombies waiting outside.

The next day, the zombie housemates are feasting on intestines, while a zombified Kelly looks at a camera.
