"The audience situation will be easier with a one-metre rule,” she continued. “But things are changing so rapidly now with the easing that September is a lifetime away.

"It may well be that social distancing has gone out the window by that point."

The news comes just months after Kevin Lygo, director of television at ITV, revealed that the series would go ahead whether they were allowed to have an audience or not, and that they had even started casting for the show

"It looks like we will have to do some shows without audiences.... [it's] more manageable for us in an enclosed guarded space,” said Kevin at the Edinburgh TV Fest.

"The challenge for the production company and us is that when the big reveal comes, you don't go 'who the **** is that?'."

Show host Joel Dommett also recently opened up on the show coming back (opens in new tab), telling father and son Martin and Roman Kemp on their new weekend show Martin and Roman’s Sunday Best, “There is going to be another series”.
