The fan favourite Derby resident previously confirmed that he missed the show thanks to being a little under the weather, and took to Twitter during Friday's episode to say that while he is all recovered, he is now missing the show due to social distancing.

Another added: "Take care Sid. We miss you but want you to be safe. See you soon wonderful man." The show has had to make some changes as certain families who aren't living together have been forced to miss the show. Izzi Warner, who usually appears on the show with her sister, Ellie, was also forced to miss the latest episode due to the lockdown. As such, Izzi was replaced by Ellie's boyfriend, Nat. Explaining the sitation, one viewer wrote: "Izzi is self isolating. Hence Nat taking her place on tonight’s episode. Also madge is the new puppy. Great additions, smashed it." Another joked: "Izzi is looking different."
