    The Big Brother Three series broke many records, with Channel 4 celebrating the best viewing figures in its 19-year history for the final show.

    A massive 8.5 million votes were cast in the final - beating 7.7 million in 2000 and 7 million in 2001.

    A total of 22.7 million votes have been recorded during the series, beating 17.5 million in the first series and 16 million the previous year.

    More than 10 million text messages were sent during the series, more than for any other event in Europe.

    Channel 4's Hertfordshire based annual summer event, Big Brother, is back for a fourth series with a new-look house and 12 new people to become engrossed with!

    Big Brother Garden.

    The show has returned to its original reality format of 12 people living together in a community, cut off from the outside world for nine weeks and getting voted out as the weeks progress.

    Big Brother Lounge.

    The new 'cocoon-like' open-plan house has been designed to be simple and uncluttered and features an additional outdoor sheltered area.

    Big Brother Bedroom.

    The 12 housemates are now in the house and producers of the show said they have looked for people who will get on well and do not play up to the cameras, as in previous years.

    Big Brother Kitchen.

    2003 sees the return of the weekly task, where housemates have to work together as a team on a task that will determine their weekly food budget. The stakes will be high, since the group will be required to place a minimum 50% bet on the outcome.

    Big Brother Pool.

    The housemates will still take part in a live challenge each Saturday night and expect Big Brother to have plenty of surprises to stun or delight the housemates!

    Designed to reflect a "back to basics" approach for the show's fourth annual run, the purpose-built house and garden are about a third smaller than last year. Gone are the metal bars that divided 2002's contestants into "rich and poor".

    Great, another few months of me not being able to get any work done because the women I work with are more concerned with the goings on in the BB House than with doing their jobs, can't wait.

    Chris, Chelmsford, UK Friday, 02-May-2003 12:36:30 GMT
    Im glad they got rid of the bars, they just got on everyones nerves by the end of the last one! The house looks like a holiday home this time round.... how do I book a place there?
