Storyline

It's eviction night at the Big Brother house, but something very strange is happening; the dead are coming alive and attacking the living. When zombies attack all of the audience outside, the Big Brother contestants are unaware of the death outside the fan-proof (and zombie-proof) big brother house until the show's runner, Kelly, comes into the house and warns them of the doom outside. Stuck with even less contact with the outside world, the house-mates must sneak out of the house to get supplies, without being seen by the zombies. Written by Jake

omg cannot believe how good and scary it is!
27 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OMG LOVE THIS PROGRAMME! just saw the first episode on E4 and i bloody love it! it was about time they made a show about zombies and I've got to say its some scary stuff. It feels so real as i have always followed the big brother show and it feels as if it is actually happening as the show shows camera angles as if you were actually watching big brother! The zombies are totally scary and the special effects are great for just a TV programme. Davina did an amazing job as acting herself obviously when she was doing the eviction scene but when she became one of the zombies she was very good and was believable cannot wait till the next episode tomorrow if anyone missed it they should definitely catch up on it on 4OD absolutely brilliant! I even jumped a few times!
