Alesha Dixon forced to film ITV’s Walk The Line from home

Alesha Dixon will film parts of new show Walk The Line from home after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid.

The Britain’s Got Talent star is set to appear on the judging panel of Simon Cowell’s new ITV talent competition, but is currently having to film the next two episodes of the show virtually after going into isolation.

Although Alesha has tested negative for Covid, she “will film the next two episodes of the show via video link as a precautionary measure”, according to an ITV spokesperson.

The series is set to resume filming this week.

New talent competition Walk The Line will feature a celebrity judging panel of Gary Barlow, Dawn French, Alesha and Craig David as music hopefuls battle it out in the hopes of winning a massive cash prize.

Simon, who created the show after the X Factor was cancelled earlier this year, was originally set to judge but has opted to step down to spend more time with his family.

He will, however, still act as the show’s executive producer, with Maya Jama acting as the show’s host.

Show creator Simon, 62, revealed he preferred being behind the camera rather than in front of it as he discussedhis decision to step down as judge from the new talent show.

Speaking to OK!, Simon recently revealed he was stepping back "just on this project".

He explained: "You know why, sometimes I produce the shows I appear on and I just took everything into account and I thought: 'You know what this is just the right thing is to step back for a second'.

"I've done it before, you know. I like being behind more than actually being on camera so – and it's a new show so I felt I probably could do more behind the scenes."

A precise release date for Walk The Line is set to be announced, but it’s thought to set to appear on ITV before the end of the year.

Alesha Dixon is also set to return as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent in 2022.
