With the ‘others’ living in a secret house, and frequent to-ing and fro-ing between them and the main housemates, the current series of ‘Big Brother’ has often been slightly confusing and a little difficult to keep track of.

But during last night’s (Tuesday 14) show, bosses unintentionally made things even more complicated, with a series of technical difficulties that left viewers bombarded with constant advert breaks and crashes.

The unfortunate incidents occurred during a live broadcast, during which the big reveal, of the 'other' house, was made to the housemates.

Sadly, when the moment arrived, viewers instead saw a blank screen, followed by ads.

At another point, the sound cut out completely, and the screen flickered to a grey screen.

Naturally, viewers took to Twitter to discuss the problems:

Though ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’ host Rylan Clark-Neal managed to see the funny side:

The episode saw Chelsea Singh losing his housemate status, when the 'other' house chose him, due to his complicated history with Jayne Connery.

Earlier in the night, Marco Pierre White Jr was once again the centre of attention, though (once again) it wasn’t for the best of reasons, as he appeared to dump his fiancée. Ouch.
