The Big Brother House is now under the auspices of the National Trust, which plans to run tours of the property for members of the public.

While the Trust has faced some criticism among its members about the decision to take the property under its wing, London director of the Trust, Ivo Dawnay said: “We think the Big Brother house is important, special and interesting and hundreds of thousands of people agree.”

Fans of Big Brother can visit the house over two days from the 27th of September.

Ivo pointed out that the house was “the birthplace of reality TV in the UK. It’s about the British talking to themselves about what being British is.
“It’s an extraordinary series of interest to large chunks of the population.”
