Ten influencers living together in a TikTok house in Ireland have been forced to find a second property to live in – just days after they posted a dance challenge clip that appeared to show a couple having sex in the background.
While many viewers suggested the video was ‘staged’ – something the housemates have denied – it now appears that posting the controversial clip may have led to them leaving the luxury Dublin property – complete with its own private chef – which they’ve been enjoying for six weeks.
In a post on the house’s Instagram account this morning @gohousedublin, a post simply read: ‘It was hard to say goodbye, but bigger and better things are around the corner…’ and accompanied a montage of the housemates’ best moments in the property.

Three of the Irish TikTok stars, influencers Andrea Camila, Shauna Davitt and Lauren Whelan, are seen dancing in the Dublin house where they’ve been living for six weeks but viewers were more than a little distracted by the raunchy antics going on in the background
The influencers – Thomas Arnold, Jake Browne, Lauren Whelan, Andrea Camila, Lewis Kelly, Ryan Mar, Shauna Davitt, Nia Gallagher and Leila Ecker – moved in together on September 2nd in a bid to boost their individual and collective profiles on social media – and currently have nearly 20,000 followers on Instagram.
They nicknamed the property, the G.O.A.T. House (greatest of all time).
In the video, influencers Andrea Camila, Shauna Davitt and Lauren Whelan, were seen whipping their hair and dancing in the property’s trendy courtyard while completing the challenge.
However, it quickly emerged as the camera followed their moves that there was a show-stealing scene going on in the background, a couple apparently having passionate sex in one of the bedrooms.
Despite many followers of the house on Twitter claiming the raunchy background antics were staged, a member of the house yesterday said it hadn’t been set up and they were still trying to find out exactly who had been caught on camera.
One viewer who was unconvinced was @stopdropandroII, who wrote: ‘Not sure I believe that this is real—who tries that hard to keep the blankets on all the way up to their necks? And the second dancer definitely saw this going on when she was facing the window for a good 20 seconds. Fake.’
Off they go: The Irish influencers, who moved in together six weeks ago to raise their profiles on social media, are heading to a second ‘less nice’ house, they’ve revealed

The housemates are now moving to a second property to continue their content production.
In a YouTube video, the house’s founder Thomas Arnold tells the influencers that they’ve got to move on.
He explains: ‘It’s not this house, it’s still a nice house but it’s not this house. Like there’s not many of these houses.’
Lauren Whelan responds to the news: ‘I don’t really care like. As long as I’m part of the house, I don’t care like where the house is.’
