8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown

MediaCityUK-based television facility dock10 has today recorded the first television show with an audience since the easing of England’s COVID-19 restrictions. 

The reduced audience was welcomed for the recording of Channel 4's 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, which dock10 said followed strict safety protocols.

Over the next few weeks dock10 said it is expecting a wide range of shows to once again be recorded with an audience.

“It’s been great to see audiences back in the studios,” said Andy Waters, Head of Studios at dock10. “The virtual audiences have been really successful, but nothing is better than the real thing and we’re so pleased to welcome people back. To hear an audience laughing again in a television studio has been fantastic, we have missed it so much.”

“Safety is our first priority, and everybody is working hard to ensure everything is as safe as possible.”
