The first-ever Big Brother winner Craig Phillips reckons this year's contestants will be living a life of luxury compared to when he won the show 11 years ago.
Craig, who donated his prize money to a family friend who needed a heart and lung transplant operation, got a sneak peek at the house at a press preview.
He said: "It is the same house, more or less the same structure, they've taken away a few bedrooms and added more to it and added even gyms to it and a big long swimming pool in there.
"I'd certainly say it looks and feels more comfortable and better than any other house out there."
The show, which launches on its new home on Channel 5 on Thursday, starts with a celebrity version.
Among the rumoured guests are American Pie star Tara Reid and boxer Ricky Hatton.
