Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
The plug has been pulled on Channel 4s Celebs Go Dating as the Omicron variant continues to spread across the UK.
Chiefs of the programme had to make the hasty decision to axe the final programme over further Covid- 19 fears – as rates surge in England, Wales and Scotland.
Instead of the show going ahead as planned in the coming weeks, the episode will be filmed in 2022.
A Celebs Go Dating spokesperson said in a statement: "In light of the wider Covid-19 situation currently impacting the UK, filming for our finale is being rescheduled as health and safety remains the top priority.
"We thank our cast, contributors and crew for following our rigorous Covid-19 protocols, which ensure that we can film the series whilst maintaining a safe environment."
They added: "Viewers can look forward to the return of the celebrity dating agency when Celebs Go Dating airs next year."
An informant also reported to The Sun: "The safety of everyone starring on the show and those working on it is a priority.
"It seemed easier, and far safer, to delay filming the final scenes until it is safer to do so in 2022."
Only last week, the show had to abort plans to allow stars of the show to travel abroad for their dates as more countries placed further restrictions on UK travel.
According to the same publication, producers had to quickly plot out a five night stay in Yorkshire for Celebs and their dates at last minute.
