Episodes will initially be filmed in a “Covid-secure venue” rather than contestants’ own homes, according to a statement.

Filming will then revert to taking place inside their houses once Government guidelines allow.

Over the course of a filming week, five contestants take turns hosting a dinner party. At the end of the week the most successful host wins a £1,000 cash prize.
