Ant and Dec explain post-lockdown plans for Britain's Got Talent
Have you been wondering how Britain's Got Talent will work in the post-lockdown world?
Well, Ant and Dec have revealed how they're keeping the show on the road and why they've been able to team up to host the shows together as usual.
"Basically our households are connected and we form a cohort so we can sit next to each other," they told Phillip and Holly. They also revealed they they're being tested for COVID-19 "every four or five days".
The pair have been busy recording the semi-final shows this week without a live audience but there's a plan in place to make sure the acts don't feel too lonely in front of the judges.
"We’ve got no audience in the studio but we have a massive virtual audience, so we have like 500 people on a huge wall in the studio who are all sat at home watching it," Dec explained. "They’re all sat on their sofa, clapping and cheering along."
"It's tough for the acts, especially for the comedians, to come out and perform in front of nobody," Ant added, "and so we needed something and they’ve come up with this, which is a very clever idea."
