The upcoming live episode of Little Mix:The Search which was meant to air this Saturday (October 17) has been postponed after crew members tested positive for coronavirus.
The seventh episode would have seen six groups battle for a place on Little Mix’s 2021 tour – and is now set to air a week later on Saturday, October 24.
A statement from the BBC show’s production team said: “We can confirm that a small number of people on the Little Mix The Search production have tested positive for coronavirus and they are now self-isolating following the latest Government guidelines.
“Due to the format of the show we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s programme.
“There are rigorous protocols in place to manage Covid-19 as the safety of all those involved in the production is paramount.
“We hope to be back on air on Saturday 24 October.”
Little Mix were not among those who tested positive.
