Many other shows have been cancelled

The Saturday Night Takeaway isn't the only show making moves to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

James Corden announced his late night talk show in the US has been put on hold for the time being.

The Ellen Show followed suit, 'we have decided to suspend production completely until March 30th.'

'We just want to take every precaution to ensure that we do our part to keep everyone healthy.'

'I love you guys, and can’t wait to come back. I’m already bored.'

Meanwhile, Dancing With The Stars Ireland pushed their finale show forward with the dancers performing to an empty audience.

'Following the government directive on having no more than 100 people gather indoors, there will be no audience at Dancing with the Stars for the remainder of the series.'

Meanwhile, this year's Eurovision Song Contest has been cancelled.
