Simon Cowell has continued to pay Britain’s Got Talent Staff despite the live shows being cancelled.

The 60-year-old is reportedly still paying all BGT crew members, despite filming being put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.

‘He’s very generous. The way that he’s dealt with his staff, paying them while the shows are off, he does everything right and he does it quietly,’ BGT judge Amanda Holden told The Sun.

It also comes after TV bosses decided that the live finals may go ahead without an audience due to social distancing.

The pre-recorded audition stages of the ITV competition are currently airing on Saturdays as they were filmed before the lockdown guidelines.

Although, while the finals are yet to take place, ITV bosses have admitted that some group acts, may cause a few issues when it comes to implementing social distancing rules.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, head of entertainment Katie Rawcliffe said: ‘It looks like we will have to do some shows without audiences. This whole experience has brought out more creativity in people and the best in people, we all have to think a bit harder about how we do things.’

Katie went on to explain some of the challenges the talent show may face.

‘There’s that bunch of Indian kids, the dance troupe… that will be a severe challenge.’
