Big Brother contestants have been informed of the coronavirus pandemic.
An Endemol Shine spokesperson has told Seven News, “Endemol Shine Australia takes the health and safety of our crew and contestants extremely seriously.”
“We are working in line with current guidelines and production on Big Brother is continuing.
“Housemates have been brought across the current situation and we are in constant contact with the families to keep all involved up to date.”
Housemates entered the Manly compound three weeks ago in what may well be one of the safest sets in the country.
The move to advise news is rare, but not unprecedented, across Big Brother history.
In the Australian series a handful of housemates were told of developments within their immediate family, while the US series told housemates about the 9 / 11 attacks.
Production of the Seven series continues.
