A show source revealed to The Sun: ‘It’s been a complete nightmare of a weekend.

‘Some really expensive equipment was damaged in the storm, not just a few marquees going over here and there.

‘Everyone is working every hour under the sun – and with hired help that also means extra pay. It’s been described on site as the £1million ­disaster. It’s been an expensive few days to say the least.’
