“I’m a Celebrity” uses construction-inspired COVID measures
Popular reality TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has issued its crew with COVID-19 social distancing tags which were first pioneered on construction sites.
Construction Enquirer reports that electronic proximity detectors, supplied by Clearview Intelligence, light up and buzz to warn people when they are two metres or less from another person.
The tags are being used by construction workers on several major sites including the Blackwall Tunnel and the TransPennine rail upgrade.
ITV Studios’ Director of Entertainment Richard Cowles, said in Construction Enquirer: “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.”
