Bosses of the American version of reality TV series Big Brother have spiced up the franchise's fourth season by throwing a bunch of ex-lovers together - without any of them knowing.
The new and daring twist to the show will see ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends and ex-spouses arriving to live at the Big Brother house for several weeks without realising just who their housemates will be.
This year (03), 13 contestants will reside together - eight of whom will be spending that time with an ex-lover in the house.
Shapiro says, "We think we have the most exciting and unpredictable twist that we have ever done. I can hardly wait to see how it plays out. Allison and I and the entire casting department can qualify as spies for the CIA."30/06/2003 21:29
