UK Big Brother cast evacuated because of bomb scare, returned hours later.
A false alarm led to the evacuation of the UK Big Brother cast on Friday. A half hour before the live broadcast, “a sniffer dog alerted security guards to a suspicious package,” The Guardian reports. The cast was evacuated but returned to the house after a three-hour absence; this week’s eviction was delayed because of the events. “The housemates cheered when they were told they would have to evacuate the house,” the BBC reports.
