BROTHEL skin 'bordello' BIG; Stars to enter animal skin 'bordello': COUNTDOWN TO THE LAST CELEBRITY BB.
THE Big Brother house has been transformed into a bordello from hell for its celebrity finale.
The dozen new housemates will enter on Sunday to find it completely draped in leather and animal skins.
The lounge and dining room is decorated with red and black leather padded walls, velvet sofas, antique furniture and animal head trophies.
They have also added painted flames into the design in a bid to add heat to the tension in the household.
And the theme will be topped off with some devilishly tricky tasks.
Executive producer Shirley Jones said: "Hell is other people and everyone has a different idea of hell."
The line-up of celebrities has been kept under wraps.
But it looks like Coronation Street's Kym Marsh will be among them. The Weatherfield favourite posted an online message saying that she had a break in filming Corrie for a few weeks - and was "off to get a reality check".
That post was quickly taken down - probably at the request of Big Brother bosses.
But Kym later posted: "I won't be near my phone or laptop for a couple of weeks next month", followed by "I'm only taking a couple of weeks off. You might even see more of me! x".
The actress then concluded: "Lets just say 2010 is going to be a BIG year right from the start! x" - a post which might as well have been soundtracked by the Big Brother theme music.
Other celebs rumoured to be going in on Sunday are actress Stephanie Beacham and footballer-turnedmovie hardman Vinnie Jones. Ex-EastEnder Brooke Kinsella is reportedly on standby to appear to raise awareness about kni fe crime following the killing of her brother Ben.
Dane Bowers, Ivana Trump and MC Hammer have also been linked to the series.
Boy George last week lost a court battle to appear on the final Celebrity Big Brother.
Luggage The former Culture Club singer, real name is George O'Dowd, was jailed for 15 months in January for handcuffing a Norwegian man to a wall in his east London home. And he was banned from taking part under the terms of his probation.
This year, producers have lifted luggage restrictions for the housemates.
In the past, everyone was allowed just one case - and poor celebs had to recycle underwear throughout their stay.
Producer Shirley revealed yesterday: "Now they can bring 20 bags if they like. There is no point in telling celebrities they can't bring in all the clothes, alcohol and cigarettes they like. They are used to having their things."
But phones and media devices are still barred. Extra security has been drafted in to go through the excess baggage to ensure no one can cheat and keep contact with the outside world.
The outdoor pool has gone but programme makers are planning to build a surprise in the garden. Yesterday, they insisted it still wasn't ready when they gave a preview tour of the living quarters.
Shirley added: "We have spent more fitting the house out for this show than ever before.
"The leather and ant ique furniture is more than repainting and there are a couple of surprises too."
The kitchen has been stripped out to look like a hospital theatre or autopsy room - and housemates will be offered the chance to hang their favourite clothes in the cool storage room.
