Top TV celebs today moved in to give the Pig Brother house a Posh and Becks-style make-over.

The sty, where surfers will be able to observe the movements of five swine in a pen 24-7, is being given star treatment by presenters of the BBC programme Changing Rooms.

They have moved in to construct "the world's most elaborate sty".

According to a press release, the Pig Brother house will be "based around a fantasy castle complete with moat and drawbridge".

Of course.

The escapade, which organisers say has been featured in the press in at least 20 countries, aims to raise money for farmers hit by the Foot and Mouth crisis.

Lycos has promised to pump money into the scheme - which will track the daily goings on of Blair, Portillo, Brown, Beckett and Widdecombe - in return for online advertising.

The site kicks off on September 1, and, like TV reality show Big Brother, surfers will be able to vote their least favourite hog out for eviction each week.
