A inside source told The Sun: "Everyone is on high alert given it is so close to the end of the series.

“The producers have grand plans to make the final bigger than ever so no one is seen without a mask and there have been loads more people queueing up to get themselves tested on site.

“Safety is paramount on a show of this scale and bosses are sure that the strict measures they have in place will mean that the final will still go ahead as planned.”

Read up on these revealing celebrity memoirs

  Read up on these revealing celebrity memoirs Celebrity news can be quite far from the truth, which is why many stars decide to take their stories into their own hands. In June 2021, Prince Harry announced that he was working on a memoir. More than a year later, the hotly anticipated autobiography has been named and given a release date. 'Spare' is scheduled to hit shelves on January 10, 2023. The title is believed to refer to the Prince's role in the royal family, as the younger brother of the heir to the throne. The book's publisher, Penguin Random House, describes it as a landmark publication written with "raw, unflinching honesty," allowing him to "tell his extraordinary life story in his words for the first time." Harry will reportedly delve into major moments from his life that he's never spoken about publicly, such as walking behind his mother's coffin at her highly publicized funeral. Given the dramatic nature of his separation from the royal family and subtle criticism of them in the following years, 'Spare' is expected to be one of the most revealing royal memoirs ever written. Prince Harry has pledged to donate all of the profits from the book to charity, and has already given US$1.5 million to a charity that was close to Princess Diana's heart. Penning a memoir can be a vulnerable and enlightening experience, and it can also stir up controversy over what really happened. Click through to see the must-read celebrity memoirs.

The spokesperson added: "We have stringent measures in place across site, safety is paramount on the show" and the that the final will not be affected by these concerns.
