He continued: “But we do have a virtual audience, which we had a little bit before on Britain’s Got Talent. Such a lot of this show is about the audience.

“So we have researched ways, and are coming up with ways, to do a much more interactive virtual wall – more than any other show has done.”

Meanwhile Ant said on This Morning: “We can still throw live to audience. Unlike other virtual audiences we’ve asked to make it very interactive.”
