Production was halted after a crew member was exposed to someone with a positive testing of COVID-19.
This resulted in every single cast and crew member being tested causing production to freeze while it all went down.
Endermol Shine Australia, Big Brother’s production company, released the news on TV Tonight.
“The test result for our Big Brother crew member believed to be exposed to COVID-19 has come back negative. We will resume filming Big Brother tomorrow and will continue to work within all Federal and State guidelines.”
This is great news for fans as this upcoming comeback season of Big Brother has been highly anticipated.
After being totally isolated, the cast had no idea about the global pandemic taking place until early last week!

To be honest, maybe they should just stay inside the house until this whole thing blows over – the Big Brother house is the height of self-isolation.
