The setting for Big Brother series ten was revealed on Tuesday, and true to the show's form, there were surprises in store. Not only had producers done away with luxury items like show's popular garden splash pool, a few basics were missing too.

In a move which appeared to keep the country's current economic downturn in mind, all furnishings appeared to be missing from the dwelling. There were no signs of sofas, chairs or beds – with only three wooden boxes placed in the corner of the bare bedroom.

The only furniture – four plastic chairs – can be found in the garden, which is much smaller than in previous years. There are also two uncomfortable-looking bus-stop style benches, which will be used as the smoking area.

It's a stark contrast to last year's house, which was one of the biggest in the history of the programme and decked out with elaborate mosaics and statutes. This year the decor follows a space-age theme, with curved walls and light panels, and what appears to be a huge reproduction of a dust mite on one of the walls in the bedroom.

Whether the 16 new housemates will have to build their own furniture, win it in tasks or sleep on the floor remains to be seen. All will be revealed when the new series kicks off this Thursday night – with Davina McCall as host – on Channel 4 at 9pm.
