The judging panel of the talent show consists of Alesha Dixon, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Ashley Banjo, however it is not known which two judges are having to isolate.

An insider has told The Sun that show bosses have ensured the stars who might be infected will stay indoors for the two week period.

They said: “The production staff in question work closely with the judging panel, particularly two of them, meaning that once they had a positive test it was bosses’ duty to inform them and send them home.

“They’re now left at home for the foreseeable, and will have to take a test too before they can stop quarantining.

“The likelihood is they’ll come back negative, but they’re taking no chances and can’t be too safe right now. So, they’re playing a waiting game for now.”

The show’s latest drama comes after judge Simon Cowell was spotted for the first time following his horrific bike accident.

The star turned 61 last week and he was seen celebrating the occasion in a video, blowing out the candles on top of his impressive birthday cake.

Simon, who reportedly feared he was paralysed after the accident, could be seen sitting down as six year old son Eric, who she shares with partner Lauren Silverman, danced into the room singing happy birthday.

The 61 year old celebrated alongside his friend Terri Seymour, who he dated from 2002 to 2008, and she took to Instagram to show her 62,000 followers a clip of Simon.

Also in attendance was Terri’s sweet daughter Coco, five, and Simon’s partner Lauren, and Simon looked excited as the cake arrived and little Eric watched on.

The X Factor judge could be seen wearing a plain white T-shirt, partnered with a navy blue jacket and large glasses.

The star was last seen in August this year, after being rushed to hospital following a fall off his electric bike.

Simon underwent six hours of surgery to fix his back and had a metal rod inserted into his spine to help the repair of the broken vertebrae.

Speaking about the terrible accident, Simon’s close friend Sinitta told Entertainment Daily: “It was a serious accident. So for people who love him, like me, it was very, very scary.

“It was very scary to hear it happen and also him being so far away and because of lockdown not being able to jump on a plane and go and see him, it was very hard.
