EXCLUSIVE: Big Brother star Shane Vincent reveals the shocking way the housemates heard about COVID-19 while on the show

Big Brother star Shane Vincent has revealed the shocking and bizarre way the cast heard about the coronavirus pandemic while filming. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia after his eviction, the 39-year-old marriage celebrant said that he and his fellow housemates were sitting outside over two separate days, when they saw a series of odd messages from a skywriter in the air.

Shane said they first saw a message which read ‘Stop [the] F1,’ and another one which read: ‘Wash your hands.’

The Big Brother house for the Channel Seven reboot is now located in Sydney’s Manly. 

The ‘wash your hands’ message in the sky over Sydney made headlines back in March, amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

In March, the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix was also cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

‘We didn’t know anything about what was going on in the outside [world], we were sitting in the backyard one day and you know the skywriters, they were above us and writing like “stop [the] F1,” Shane said.   

‘And we were like, “what the hell is going on?!”

Shane said they went to ask Big Brother for some more information, but weren’t informed about the pandemic until the second skywriter message appeared.  

‘And the next day, a skywriter came up and said, “wash your hands” in the sky. And we were like, “wash your hands? What is going on out there!”

‘And a couple of days later, we had a meeting and they told us about COVID-19.’

In March, it was reported that production of the show shut down for at least two days while a crew member was tested for coronavirus.

According to TV Blackbox, the series had been temporarily halted until the staffer’s results were back, after ‘someone they live with tested positive for COVID-19’.

TV Tonight reported that production soon resumed at the time after the results came back negative.  

Meanwhile, host Sonia Kruger previously revealed that the housemates heard of the coronavirus pandemic on March 13, with a producer going into the house.     

Shane was booted off the show on Sunday during a shocking eviction.

He told Daily Mail Australia that he was ‘gutted’ to be out of the house.
