NEW Walk The Line judge Alesha Dixon will be forced to miss filming of the new ITV show after coming into contact with someone with Covid.
The TV host and Britain’s Got Talent star, 43, will appear via video link from home in case she later presents symptoms.
Filming on the new ITV show, devised by Simon Cowell, continues this evening which the former Misteeq singer will have to swerve.
She will also film a later episode this week from home, despite currently testing negative on a lateral flow test.
A source said: “Alesha feels fine and is negative according to tests.
“But to be safe she’s keeping herself to herself and avoiding going on set until she’s had the definitive all-clear.
“It’s just not worth the risk to the rest of the production, the crew, her co-judges and the contestants.
“She’s hoping to be back on set soon.”
Alesha is on the show’s judging panel alongside comedienne Dawn French, 64, Take That singer Gary Barlow, 50, and Craig David, 40.
The show is being hosted by Maya Jama, 27.
We told last month how 62-year-old Simon stepped down from the six-part series' judging panel in order to spend more time with his partner Lauren Silverman and their seven-year-old son Eric.
Simon will instead take the role of executive producer.
An ITV spokeswoman said: “Alesha Dixon has come into close contact with someone who has tested positive with COVID 19 and although she is currently testing negative, she will film the next two episodes of the show via video link as a precautionary measure.”
