The show, fronted by girl group Little Mix and made by ModestTV, has postponed this weekend’s episode after a “small number” of crew members tested positive for Covid-19. It will return October 24.
Those affected are self-isolating, the show said in a statement. It added: “Due to the format of the show we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s program. There are rigorous protocols in place to manage COVID-19 as the safety of all those involved in the production is paramount.”

The hiatus follows Deadline revealing on Tuesday that the Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special has been postponed after three employees tested positive for coronavirus. It is unlikely that the show will be remounted.
