WHO'D LIVE IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS.

Byline: JULIA KUTTNER

BIG Brother is going back to basics this year - and housemates will enjoy a "warm and cosy" atmosphere.

Producers unveiled the new-style reality TV house yesterday and announced there would be no gimmicks like last year's rich/poor divide between contestants.

Instead, they say, the house at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire will be designed to help them all get along.

Designers have ditched loud colours and created what they call a "cocoon" environment.

The garden has also been overhauled, with a bigger lawn and a cedar arbour. Show chief Phil Edgar-Jones said: "The house is cosy because we wanted to create a warmer and more intimate feel."

So who'd live in a house like this? We'll have to wait until the end of this month when the series begins to find out. More than 10,000 hopefuls applied for the 12 places and there is now a shortlist of 50.
