The crew member and everyone that they have been directly in contact with have all been tested and are awaiting results.”

“The cast and crew have been asked to urgently self-quarantine while the necessary health procedures and testing are being arranged in accordance with government legislation. Whilst our doors stay closed, our studio and offices will be disinfected and sanitised.
