Netflix series The Crown might be one of the most expensive TV shows ever made, however that hasn’t stopped the filming being halted because of Big Brother!
Yes, the Channel 5 reality show stopped filming of the streaming show because of live evictions.
Both Big Brother and The Crown are filmed at Elstree Studios in north London, with the Big Brother house built on the Elstree backlot.
Alongside the George Lucas stage, and other studio space Netflix chose Elstree to build The Crown’s mass sets, including Downing Street and Buckingham Palace.
Netflix were forced to stop filming their multimillion pound show The Crown due to Emma Willis evicting housemates!
An insider revealed: “It was so frustrating because you’d have the lead characters trying to deliver these epic lines and you couldn’t hear them.
“Instead all you got was host Emma Willis shouting, ‘You have been evicted from the Big Brother house’ followed by these endless waves of cheering crowds.”
But it seems stars Claire Foy and Matt Smith weren’t too worried.
The TV insider added to The Sun: “There was just nothing they could do but roll their eyes and go back to their trailers before rescheduling the filming.
“Fortunately they could see the funny side of this epic historical drama being stalled by a reality TV show.”
The Crown Series 2 is released on Neflix on Friday December 8.
