In For a Penny has started filming the next series today. Not a show I expected to be back filming so soon, so it'll be interesting to see how they have adapted it.

Bit tricky when most of us haven't paid in cash for months. Agree I'm surprised they've gone ahead with filming something which isn't in a controlled environment.


Contactless payments of 1p are entirely possible.

In for a Penny, it’s both one of those shows they can film quickly and easily to get more content in the can, but then also a show where they wouldn’t want to get to much in the can, as it would look very dated if the world ever goes fully back to normal.

It’ll be interesting to see how they do it as Stephen certainly doesn’t usually stay 2m from the punters, he’s often hardly 2cm away.

Did they film any before lockdown? Will be interesting to see what changes they make to it, they've still got over 100 episodes in the can from the current series which they'll probably spread out from the Autumn.

Soccer Aid will happen in September. Later than usual (it would've ordinarily happened already) and behind closed doors due to the pandemic.

As we know Tipping Point has returned to filming. Here's a look how the studio has been modified (taken from Instagram)

Will be interesting how that looks on screen when the episodes air.

I wonder if they'll use the original layout for Lucky Stars as that's only three contestants and you would be able to keep them 2m apart easier than four contestants.

Looks a similar solution to what The Chase Australia went with.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Having the separate podiums probably makes it look less odd though. It’s more or less the same layout as Pointless has always had.

It's a strange layout, almost looks like the contestants are behind each other which must make it awkward to see the machine too.

Depends how it looks on screen when these new episodes are broadcast ... and BTW, they're not podiums!

"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .
