ITV announces that its first entertainment show is about to start filming after lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Iconic game show Catchphrase will start filming week commencing 6 July as STV Productions record 10 episodes of the programme. They will be broadcast on ITV and STV during autumn 2020.
Protocols have been implemented to ensure the safety of contributors and crew and make filming possible. These include online health declaration forms; physical changes to the set, galleries and make up rooms; the creation of working ‘bubble’ groups; staggered start times and changes to the catering service. Crew will maintain safe social distancing and contributors and crew will all have their temperatures checked on a daily basis throughout the filming period. Cleaning and sanitisation of studios and filming areas will happen on a daily basis and equipment will be assigned to individual crew members. There will not be an audience in the studio.
