BIG Brother contestants are to be given more bananas and a tyre on a rope, Channel 4 said last night.
The troop spent the early days of the series sunning themselves on rocks and picking insects from each other’s hair.
However, they soon became bored and divided into rival factions, attacking each other with the sticks they use to catch ants. Last Thursday a tea party descended into faeces-ridden chaos.
Meanwhile 'Dennis', a young male, has been removed from the enclosure after he began masturbating furiously in public while baring his teeth and gums.
A Channel 4 spokesman said: "Young Big Brother contestants are naturally curious and playful. But we are starting to see an aggressive streak which could lead to all out war and, eventually, cannibalism.
"If the bananas and the rope swing don't work we'll give them some beads and an exercise bike. After that we release the bounty hunters."
However, Nikki Hollis, an animal welfare expert, said: "Big Brother started off as a valid scientific experiment, but these poor creatures are now being made to perform like circus humans.
"The sooner we can release them into a life of fourth-rate celebrity and tragic personal appearances the better."
