Little Mix fans have been tuning into BBC One over the past few weekends as band members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall search for the next pop band to join them on their upcoming tour. However, The Search will have to go on longer than expected as a number of positive coronavirus cases within the team has resulted in the show being postponed.
In a statement released by the Little Mix The Search official Twitter page, it was confirmed the BBC show would not air on Saturday (October 17).
The statement reads: “We can confirm that a small number of people on 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 managa COVID-19 as the safety of all those involved in production is paramount.
