BRITAIN’S Got Talent’s Christmas special was dramatically shut down this morning – after a COVID-19 outbreak on set. At least three crew members tested positive for the illness before the first day of filming the one-off.
Panicked bosses then immediately closed down the entire production, despite the fact that cameras were ready to roll. Crew for the show, which will see the nation’s favourite BGT acts return to the stage in the festive extravaganza, were told last night not to turn up for work.
And production staff who tested positive, and those who work closely with them, were told they must self-isolate in line with governement guidelines.
