Fans of Little Mix: The Search may have to wait a little longer for the live shows to air, after they were put on hold due to members of production testing positive for coronavirus.

The first live show with host Chris Ramsey was supposed to air this Saturday, but the BBC have had to postpone it for the safety of the crew.

A statement was released today on the official Little Mix: The Search Instagram page where they informed viewers of the news.

"We can confirm that a small number of people on 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," the statement read.

Production concluded the message by adding that they are hoping to air the first live show next Saturday.

"We hope to be back on air on Saturday 24th October," they said.

Many fans expressed their disappointment about the cancellation, but understood that safety is paramount.

"Stay safe and don't worry!! we are so sorry but protect yourself," one viewer commented.

"No I was looking forward for Saturday but I understand safety is important. Get well soon," another Instagram user said.

The first episode of the show aired on 26 September and followed Little Mix members Jesy Nelson, 29, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, Perrie Edwards, 27, and Jade Thirlwall, 27, as they attempted to find six different bands to take through to the live shows.

The bands the girls are looking for range from a boyband, mixed group, girl vocal, vocal and instruments, girl dance and Rap R&B.

After impressing with their auditions, contestants were then asked to sing together and after being whittled down, the remaining members sang in front of a live audience.
