Karl Stefanovic's This Time Next Year stunt goes wrong

It's the Channel Nine show that sees everyday Australians commit to changing themselves over the course of a year.

But things didn't go according to plan during filming of This Time Next Year's premiere episode after a fiery stunt went wrong, causing $40,000 worth of damage.

Monday's episode saw 33-year-old Mel Goh pledge to become a stuntwoman, but a feat of daring went wrong, destroying an LED screen at the back of the stage with Nine's head of production and development Trent Chapman telling news.com.au: 'sorry to our insurers.'

'It all went perfect but then, of course, in the heat of the moment, so to speak, there was a small problem,' Matt told the publication.
