Due to a case of coronavirus, the first live edition of Little Mix ‘The Search’ has been postponed.

Little Mix’s live show slated for Saturday with six rival bands battles it out for a place on Little Mix’s tour. The girl band which consists of Perrie Edwards, Jessy Nelson, Leigh Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall are said to be free from the virus, while the crew members working on the show have tested positive.

In a statement, BBC said, “We can confirm that a small number of people on the Little Mix The Search production have tested positive for coronavirus and they are now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines. Due to the format of the show, we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s programme.

There are rigorous protocols in place to manage Covid-19 as the safety of all those involved in the production is paramount. We hope to back on air on Saturday, October 24th.

The show follows the girl band Little Mix, form six groups and the winning band will join them on their tour in 2021. Currently, the six groups have been locked down and are ready to perform when the show is ready to go on.
