Opposite the pool lies a spa beside checkerboard flooring. 

Floodlights dot the surrounding walls, and a Big Brother symbol, potentially a light, appears to loom over the setting. 

The new Big Brother house has been approved by the local council, and will have a completely different feel compared to the previous two seasons on Seven.

Caitlyn Jenner, Meghan Markle’s estranged half-brother Thomas Markle Jr, and Married At First Sight star Jessika Power have been spotted on the newly erected set.

Thomas, 55, replaced far-right commentator Katie Hopkins who was sent back to the UK for threatening to break quarantine rules.
