From secret shags under the kitchen table to people shoving bottles up their hoo-haas, the Big Brother house has seen some things in the last 17 years.
But alas, change is afoot with the house at Elstree Studios, in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, having been torn down now that the show has ended.
TV producer Mattie Jameson shared a picture of the property being dismantled, with the sad caption, “The iconic Big Brother doors currently looking like this! #BBUK #CBB.”
It’s a devastating blow for Big Brother fans who were recently given fresh hope that the Channel 5 franchise fronted by Emma Willis could be saved.

Voiceover guy Marcus Bentley dropped a huge hint when he launched a new Instagram account and started posting throwbacks to his time on the show.
"Narrating Big Brother – We will be back! #bigbrotheruk #voiceovers #voiceover" he captioned one shot.
When fans questioned if he meant what they thought he meant, he cryptically replied, "I know nothing yet."

Adding to the speculation, instead of being permanently closed, the audition page for the show read, "Big Brother will get back to you".
And Emma Willis recently refused to deny that Netflix will take over the series, which ended in November last year.
"Hand on my heart, 100 per cent I don’t know. I have asked and they’ve been like, ‘We’re talking to people!’" she shared on This Morning.

"People are very non-committal at the moment, people don’t know."
Questioned on whether she would like to do it when asked, she said: "If it happened – I’m one of those people that, in a perfect world it would be amazing but until we get there, nobody knows.
"Nobody knows who’s going to make it – do they want new presenters? Are they going to want to scrap it and start again? Who knows. And depending on what changes are made on whether I was there or not. We’ll wait and see."
