'Big Brother' is turning the Nest into a makeshift Diary Room.
Following the shock storm last night (17.08.10) - which caused the Channel 4 compound to be completely flooded, and the housemates temporarily evacuated to a nearby hotel - bosses on the show are racing around making emergency alterations to the house.
The official 'Big Brother' website reports: "After last night's action, housemates are still fast asleep in the Task Room. The BB team are working as quickly as possible to get them back into the house and we're hoping that should be later today. Engineers are currently checking every single cable within the building and double checking everything is in order and safe for our housemates before they return.
"Housemates will have access to the Garden, the Kitchen and the Task Room today... and the Nest will become a temporary Diary Room!"
After reentering the compound in the early hours of the morning, the nine contestants discovered a makeshift bedroom in the task room - filled with inflatable beds.
Despite the dramas of the evening, the group was in good spirits and even had a pillow fight, before Dave let down prankster Sam's airbed while he was lying on it.
Unbeknown to them, their prediction task is also going ahead as planned.
The site added: "The good news is that this week's shopping task will continue as usual, so stay tuned for Bob Righter's predictions today."
