YouTubers Ally Law and Ryan Taylor caused the biggest security breach in Celebrity Big Brother history when they broke into the famous house and filmed the contestants on Saturday night (20Jan18).
The pranksters shared footage from the “break-in” on their Snapchat, with clips showing Ashley James and Ann Widdecombe sitting at the kitchen table and Ginuwine and Jonny Mitchell standing and chatting at the bottom of the stairs. The video also showed Ally dressed in a bright orange jacket and head torch to make him look like a worker on the set of the Channel 5 show, with Ryan whispering to him that they “have to be quick” as they filmed through the front door.
Another Snapchat video appeared to show Ryan filming through a hole at the top of the stairs, through which Jonny, John Barnes and Dapper Laughs could be seen talking in a circle.
They promised fans they would post a full video of the stunt on YouTube, but in a new video on his Twitter page, Ally explained that “legal issues” were preventing the pair from doing so.
“Last night we done something crazy but we’re in a bit of a legal issue at the moment with it,” he said in the video posted on Sunday. “And we can’t release any footage at the moment because there’s a big risk. But I’m saving that footage and I’m working on it.
“We’re all over the newspapers today for it – if you know, you know, if you don’t know, you’ll soon know. We’re working on getting the video out and we will get the video out very soon for you guys. You will understand soon.”
A representative for Celebrity Big Brother confirmed the security breach, saying in a statement: “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.”
