A new venue has been found to film the upcoming show, M-Net and Endemol said a statement, but would not reveal where the house will be situated.

A new venue had to be found after the original house at Sasani Studios in Highlands North burnt down. The show was scheduled to start on the 7th of September but was held back due to the fire.

No one was hurt in the fire and the cause of the fire is still being investigated.

It was initially speculated that the show may be shot in another country where there is an already existing Big Brother house.

The show is expected to air within the next month..
