ITV used the Bovingdon Airfield setup that Dancing on Ice uses for recent recording of The Masked Singer. What's this like as a production facility? I can't imagine it's very flexible. I thought it was a temporary space, just to house an ice rink.



ITV has invested a lot of money into bringing the site up to standards; there are now permanent fibre circuits and mains power, and the main studio structure is of semi-permanent design. There is also a production block comprising dressing rooms, makeup and ancillary space and a production office that are supported by ITV's in-house Workplace Services team.

They've also had a fair amount of interest since the end of the last series of Dancing on Ice. As mentioned previously, The Masked Singer has just wrapped in there (the next Series of Dancing on Ice moves back in a few weeks), and a number of Netflix and BBC dramas have used the vast studio space for drama. I believe ITV are really trying to encourage further Light Ent usage in the coming years.

How they managing to stop leaks of the Masked singer contestants considering their will be relying on social media buzz.

Re. central lobby. I think the issue is you have to have media accreditation passes to be situated there and I believe its only senior political correspondents at the BBC who have access, so the likes of Huw, Simon etc don't. College Green is different, as the temporary enclosure there is staffed by G4S and they will let journalists/members of the media through providing they have sufficient press ID. ?


Well, Jon Snow is stood in the lobby presenting C4 News right now


Well, as has been mentioned on here before, Channel 4 News have less correspondents so can allocate their passes/accreditations a bit more sparingly.


Fewer 😎

However, surely as far as accreditation is concerned they are all 'ITN' journos?

This, along with the Carla episode earlier in the year, does show that Corrie really is one of the least suitable programmes to have a film look (not that that stops producers these days).

It does look bad though, as bad as the last year of The Bill did.
