Will shared these images on his social media

It is not yet known when new episodes are set to appear on screens, but main presenter on the show, Jay Blades, recently revealed that they had managed to film safely through lockdown, so it seems that fans can look forward to lots of new content.

The presenter also opened up to HELLO! at the end of 2020 about the ways in which the show's filming was able to go ahead while adhering with social distancing restrictions. "The beauty is that we've got the brilliant team behind the cameras," he told HELLO!.

"[They] worked out logistically how it would look like that we're still together but we're not together and adhering to social distancing. They've done a brilliant job, when you do see the new series, you'll recognise that there's not as much touching, but it'll still feel exactly the same."
