‘Big Brother’ delayed after fire at house

2014-09-04 00:00

BIG Brother Africa season nine has been postponed following a devastating fire at the Big Brother House in Highlands North, Johannesburg, on Tuesday night.

Big Brother Hotshots was supposed to get under way on Sunday, September 7.

Maud Nale, spokesperson for M-Net and Endemol SA, said the cause of the fire is not known and investigations will begin as soon as it is safe to do so.

“At this stage M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however, as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements, an alternative is not immediately available,” she added.

“Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue.”

No one was injured during the fire.
