New feature on Histomat: Big Brother No. 10

Today marks the historic launch of Big Brother No. 10, where contestants will compete to rise up the greasy pole of political power by going into No. 10 Downing Street - or what will now be called 'the Big Brother House'. Sponsored by No2ID, today the first housemates will enter No. 10 and Histomat will be first with the official news of the power struggle which results.

So...what are we waiting for? Lets meet the first housemates!
