Little Mix The Search’s next episode has been delayed – here’s why the show isn’t on tonight and when it returns.
New Little Mix talent show Little Mix The Search recently aired its first six audition episodes, which were recorded earlier this year.
This weekend (October 31) was meant to see the second of the performance shows but the latest episode has been delayed.
It follows Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing a planned press conference at 5PM this evening.
The semi-final, original due to air tonight, will now air on Friday, 6 November at 7PM.
As things stand, the grand final is set to air as planned on 6:05PM on Saturday, 7 November.
In a statement the show said: “Little Mix The Search has been postponed tonight for a BBC News special.
“The show will now become part of a big final event weekend, with the semi-final airing at 7pm on Friday 6th November and the final at 6.05pm on Saturday 7th November”
It’s the latest delay to the series which was previously forced to postpone the first of the performance shows, while self-isolation forced Jade Thrill to appear in last week’s episode virtually.
The new series follows Little Mix as they put together six unique bands to follow in their footsteps and become the next global superstars.
They are a Boy Band, Mixed Group, Girl Vocal Group, Mixed Vocal & Instrument Group, Girl Dance Group and a Rap R&B Group.
In the performance shows the six bands will head to head with the winning band joining Little Mix on their next UK tour.
Chris Ramsey will host the live shows while McFly have been confirmed as one of the guest acts joining Little Mix.
You can catch up on the latest episodes of Little Mix The Search from the BBC iPlayer.
