The way things are going at the moment I suspect the audience might be pulled for the early shows, but I think if they can go ahead it'll actually work quite well. The trickier thing may be the Clauditorium, but I guess if they only have the dancers being interviewed up there it'll be easy enough with social distancing.

Will be nice too that the judges have room to swing a cat at their desks - they've always looked so cramped compared to other talent shows.

The Clauditorium is axed it seems. Couples will sit in the audience around tables.


The link posted by all new Phil above says that Claudia will still interview individual couples upstairs, with the rest indeed sitting at tables opposite the judges.

Any news on It Takes Two - doesn't seem to be mentioned in that article and would be understandable if they'd had to ditch it or at least scale it back.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

It's definitely coming back as they've been looking for people to work on it.

Makes sense, considering the self-isolation would cause them to miss two episodes, and they only usually allow a one week bye.

But I wonder what would happen if this happens multiple times, causing them to have too few contestants left?

I'm sure they've planned for that for that scenario.

I can't see how you can scale it back, most of it is just people talking. Seems one of the easier programmes to make at the moment.

I am sure they have stand by contestants on hand too. There was rumours of Mark Feehily from Westlife being involved in this year's show, maybe he is on the stand by list?

I wonder where they will film It Takes Two now. TV Centre I guess. The Hospital Club has closed permanently.

I doubt it, unless it’s no longer done live. Riverside would be my bet.
