"It will not be so exciting to see it." But it will certainly make things easier for the production team. "

Simon, Robbie and Ayda agreed to film the heats in their own homes.

Our source added: "Filming the heats of the houses of three judges in the same city will certainly save money, but it is not happening due to budgetary problems." This is what worked best for the judges involved.
