Two YouTuber pranksters have broken into the Celebrity Big Brother house and filmed contestants just metres away in the biggest security breach in the show’s history.
Ryan Taylor and Ally Law, who are known for stunts where they break into buildings, managed to get into the house, located in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, and record the show’s stars through glass doors.
The prankster pair, who caused a stir when they broke into London’s National Theatre and began swinging on the stage ropes, uploaded snippets of the footage to their Snapchat but promise to release the full video on YouTube.
They filmed housemates including Jonny Mitchell, Ginuwine, Dapper Laughs, Ashley James and Ann Widdecombe chatting in the living area – but the pranksters appeared to go unnoticed.
The YouTubers may have posed as maintenance or construction workers as Ally can be seen wearing a bright orange fluorescent jacket and wearing a head camera.
On Ryan’s Snapchat, he seems to be filming through a hole at the top of the stairs and sees Jonny, Dapper Laughs and John Barnes talking in a circle with their backs to the camera.
Following the stunt, Ally tweeted: ‘Tonight was a madness!! There will be no video but I promise it will make sense soon, stay tuned.
But after teasing fans he later wrote: ‘Guuuuys, there should be a video tomorrow night! Bear with me, I’ve been stupidly busy.’
Their latest prank might just top all of their previous stunts, which include breaking into London’s National Theatre, Scaling The Big One in Blackpool, breaking into Bracknell’s Coral Reef waterpark overnight, riding a BMX off a diving board at the Olympic pool and breaking into the O2 Arena after hours.
A statement from Big Brother revealed the pair were eventually stopped by guards.
‘Last night, two intruders were apprehended by security at Elstree Studios. The safety of housemates, production and audience members is of paramount importance and Big Brother has appropriate security measures in place at all times,’ bosses told The Sun Online.
