The Big Brother house has been given a dramatic makeover ahead of the new series!

It has already been revealed that this year's Big Brother will be based upon the theme of 'self-sufficiency and recycling', and it's fair to say the famous compound reflects that.

The eco-friendly house has been furnished with a range of colourful chairs, beds and textiles to give it a retro appearance.

There is a funky TV wall in the living room made of 80s monitors and a very basic looking table with green plastic chairs for dining.

In the bedroom, contestants will sleep on metal framed beds and, instead of a fancy gym, they can build up a sweat on an old bicycle that has been converted for indoor exercise!

There does appear to be plenty of books lining the shelves, meaning housemates can keep themselves occupied in quieter moments. However, if we know Big Brother, they are probably fake!

The garden has had the most dramatic change around. At one end, a new timber house has been erected, complete with two floors, windows and even fairy lights.

But given the outside sinks, we're wondering if some contestants will be living in there...

There is also a large area of potted vegetables. Perhaps Big Brother has done away with the weekly shopping list?

BB bosses have promised that this year's show, renamed Big Brother: Lies and Secrets, will be the harshest yet.

We think the house looks lovely, but then again, we're not the ones who have to live there this summer!

Big Brother: Lies and Secrets, 9pm, Thursday 13 June.
