'Big Brother' bosses are panicking after the Diary Room chair "burst" hours before tonight (09.06.10)'s launch.
Designers have been called in to make emergency repairs to the legendary item of furniture, after it broke during last-minute rehearsals.
Creative Director Phil Edgar Jones wrote on an internet forum: "Final snagging round the house, which is looking really good. Slight problem with the Diary Room chair, in that the material housemates are supposed to actually sit on has burst.
"Designers frantically designing something else. The Chair itself is heavenly."
The TV boss also revealed show host Davina McCall is going through her script on set and is currently being driven "mad" by not knowing who the contestants are going to be.
He explained on the Digital Spy website: "We have now made our final selection for the first wave of housemates. Davina is on site and we've gone through the script for the launch show. For the first time ever she has no idea who the housemates are and it's driving her mad. It's very busy here and all the team are really excited."
The final series of 'Big Brother' launches in Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
