Crew working on the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have been issued with social distancing tags pioneered on construction sites.
ITV studios have kitted-out the crew with the electronic tags as part of their Covid-safe production plan.
The electronic proximity detectors supplied by Clearview Intelligence light up and buzz to warn people when they are two metres away from another person.
The tags are being used by construction workers on a string of major sites including the Blackwall Tunnel and the TransPennine rail route upgrade.
ITV Studios’ Director of Entertainment Richard Cowles, said: “The crew on I’m A Celebrity all wear proximity monitors that alert them when they are less than two metres away from each other, that way they can step back and safely social distance.
“We want to do everything we can to create the safest workplace for crew, cast and our hosts.”
The celebrities have been self isolating for two weeks in their own “bubble” so will not have to wear the tags.
Nick Lanigan, Managing Director of Clearview Intelligence, said: “These tags are an essential tool in supporting staff to work safely in any environment.
“ITV Studios recognises that it makes sense from a health and safety and business continuity perspective to use the tags and help keep their staff safe.”
