BBC says Question of Sport filming cancellation not due to Covid Strictly fears

THE BBC has told audiences set to attend next week's A Question of Sport recordings that they’ve been cancelled. But the corporation insists it’s nothing to do with Covid.

It was initially feared it could have been a Covid safety precaution linked to the fact that one of the new team captains is Ugo Monye.

The former rugby star is partnered with two-time winner Oti Mabuse on Strictly, where tensions are rising over Covid as a result of three unnamed pros being unvaccinated.

A Question of Sport was due to be created at the corporation’s Salford studios with a live studio audience over the space of two days.

It has Paddy McGuinness hosting the recently revamped show with Olympic hockey player Sam Quek is Ugo’s opposing team captain.

The BBC maintained Covid concerns had nothing to do with the decision to cancel the recordings and it was entirely due to logistical problems arising.

They also insisted that transmission of the final series, most of which has already been made, would not be affected.

A spokeswoman said: “As is sometimes usual for a production, we have had to reschedule filming. We will still be welcoming a full studio audience.”
