Since September


The series was supposed to go out in April but was postponed as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, and would have found a supporting slot on Little Mix's 2020 summer tour. When it resumed, the show aired its six episodes on Saturdays and Sundays. A few days before the first live show was due to air, several crew members tested positive for the virus, and that episode was lost. When it resumed, Jade Thirlwall contributed via video link, as she was self-isolating. The episode scheduled for 31 October was also lost to Yet More Waffle, though that got rescheduled, to 6 November; the episode the following day lost Jesy Nelson, who would later leave the band. The winner will support Little Mix on their 2022 Confetti tour, if indeed it goes ahead.
