Watch: Is this Celebrity Big Brother clip proof that the show is scripted?
Viewers watching the Celebrity Big Brother live feed on Thursday night were left gobsmacked when Big Brother appeared to air a staged segment of the show.
This two-minute long video, which was shared on Twitter by Big Brother Xtra, shows how the lights were turned off in the Big Brother household for a bed scene, and then quickly switched back on again for a daytime scene.
When the lights were switched off, Big Brother told the celebrities: ‘This is Big Brother: Finalists, goodnight.’
‘Great take guys, great take,’ Ricky Norwood told the other housemate afterwards.
When the lights are switched back on, all the contestants get back up and Big Brother speaks to the house saying:
"This is Big Brother. So housemates, just listen to Big Brother again, and Big Brother will just say to you that tomorrow is a really, really big day for all of you.
"It's going to start quite early and it's going to end very late at night, so what Big Brother would suggest is that you all wash your teeth, get whatever washing your bodies you need to get done, have whatever last cigarettes you want to have, and then call it a night relatively quickly."
