The producers of Live At The Apollo have delayed filming Series 16 of the long-running BBC stand-up show until 2021, due to social distancing measures affecting theatres.

The programme normally records a new batch of episodes at the Hammersmith Apollo around September time, but creators Open Mike Productions now confirmed they won't try and record any episodes this year, as they won't be able to have a big enough live audience.

A spokesperson for the show confirmed: "In light of the current social distancing measures affecting theatres in the UK, Live At The Apollo will not be filmed this year. Whilst this news will be disappointing for viewers, the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in the show is our number one priority. The good news is that Live At The Apollo will return bigger and brighter in 2021 for its 16th series, once again welcoming the cream of established and up-and-coming comedy stars to the Apollo stage."
