Discussing the news on her Heart radio show, she said she was "delighted" when she heard that filming for the show had been delayed, as she believes not having a live audience "affects the quality of the show".

She explained: "So much hard work goes on backstage and everyone's really done a huge effort to make it the best show it could be, but it still affects it, so I would rather wait and make it the best it could be and put it on in the autumn."
