The BGT spokesperson told The Sun: “As a result of a positive Covid-19 result received yesterday we have implemented our protocols and a number of crew members are self-isolating at home.

“As a result, we are unable to continue filming our BGT Christmas Special today and have taken the decision to postpone. 

“The safety of all those involved in the show is our number one priority and we follow extensive Covid-19 related procedures to adhere to all government guidelines.”

The BGT Christmas special is set to see a number of well-loved former contestants return to work together in a bid to impress the audience.
