Richard said: “Obviously there were issues around filming during Covid times.
“There’s a lot of protocol on all TV right now for several reasons.
“One, if you’re in production this show costs a lot to make and if we go and bring one case of Covid in and we’re going to shut down, somebody is going to be footing a very big bill for something that isn’t going to get on television.
“But worst than that is the possibility of taking it somewhere. A lot of the places we were visiting in Scotland, the people have chosen very deliberately to live in a beautiful remote place and the very last thing they would want and the worst thing we could do is as a big TV unit is to turn up and import this terrible disease with us so we had to be super careful.”
