All of the furniture has been removed from the 'Big Brother' house.

Following the housemates' roof protest about living conditions - and lack of alcohol - yesterday (15.07.08) Big Brother took all furniture from the reality TV house during the night.

The contestants were then awoken by the sound of a cock crowing this morning (16.07.09) to find a note reading: "As Housemates are unable to respect the fixtures and fittings of the House, Big Brother has been left with no other decision than to remove them until further notice."

The protest included Marcus, Noirin, Freddie (Halfwit), Charlie and Siavash - causing Lisa, Karly, Sophie (Dogface) and Rodrigo to moan about their actions.

Outspoken lesbian Lisa said: "I knew they'd punish people."

Brazilian housemate Rodrigo added: "This is embarrassing, you understand. We are humans, we don't know how to respect a place and they the take away the furniture.

Lisa then said: "I never touched it, I'm not to blame. They know who disrespected it and who hasn't, so. But then it's not fair of the people who have respected the furniture."

Other ideas for action in the protest included invading camera runs and blocking mirrors off so housemates couldn't be seen, but they didn't get much further than spraying cleaning product on the mirrors.
