Big Brother bosses issue security crackdown after ‘major incident’ at north west London house where rebooted show is filmed

Big Brother bosses have issued a major crackdown after a ‘security breach’ at the house. 

The rebooted ITV show, which is being hosted by AJ Odudu and Will Best, has attracted a lot of attention since relaunching for the first time since 2015. 

Despite security measures around the house, which is based at Garden Studios in North West London, a frightening security incident has allegedly already occurred. 

According to The Sun, a YouTuber attempted to film the contestants using a drone before hacking into the show’s radio system and listening in to the TV crews. 

The intruder then refused to leave when confronted by security.

A TV insider told the newspaper: ‘Given how popular the reboot of the show has been since launching last week, it has become clear there’s a huge interest in it.

‘And putting footage of attempts to access the house on social media makes it a tempting prospect.

‘The message bosses want to put out is, ‘Don’t even bother trying — you won’t succeed.’

Bosses have had to ramp up security measures in the wake of the incident to ensure the safety of the contestants and the smooth running of the show, it is claimed. 

The original Big Brother house was located at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire but was demolished in 2018 when Channel 5 axed the show. 

Bosses put together a completely new house for the rebooted series, which is located Garden Studios in North West London. 

The newly built studios, the largest in London, boasts ‘versatile staging’, an ‘in-house Virtual Production studio’ and ‘the latest production technologies’.

A TV insider previously told MailOnline: ‘Garden Studios is the ideal location for filming the new Big Brother series.

‘Not only is it London-based but it’s only been open for a year and promises the highest standard of production and also a commitment to sustainability.

‘Elstree Studios became famous for Big Brother and its live studio audience and bosses are hoping Garden Studios will grow to be as loved as the show’s first iconic home.’

From its launch in 2000 until 2010 the series aired on Channel 4 before moving to Channel 5 in 2011. It ran thee for seven years until Channel 5 finally axed the format in 2019. 

MailOnline has contacted ITV Studios for comment.
