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.
