The BBC have been forced to postpone this weekend’s episode of Little Mix The Search. The live shows had been scheduled to commence on Saturday, but a number of production staff have tested positive for covid 19, forcing the episode to be delayed.

A statement says “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”.
