How, in TV, does this secret thing work. Especially with a live audience.
Lots of NDAs? Have ITV gone legal?!
I can’t see how they’ve managed it and strictly results are leaked every single week!?
Can only assume the reveals have been done without an audience.
Yes I think it was on the ticket applications that only a select audience would see the reveals. I assume only the production staff?
From BBC News:
It's difficult to recall a studio audience so frustrated by a TV show recording.
Not because those present at a September taping of The Masked Singer didn't enjoy the show. Far from it - most cheered, laughed and evidently thought it was great entertainment.
But the audience (which BBC News was a part of) sat through several hours of recording and reshoots, only to be told just before the end that they all had to leave as producers filmed the crucial moment where the evicted celebrity was unmasked.
Only a select few members of the public were allowed to stay.
In an age of social media spoilers, keeping the studio audience in the dark is one of several measures ITV has taken to keep the identities of its masked celebrities under wraps.
Audience members had to sign NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) on their way into the taping, which took place at a remote airfield away from the press and public.
But the efforts to avoid word getting out could be worth it for the viewing figures ITV will be hoping it brings in.
