This is why ‘The Great British Baking Show’ is filmed in a white tent
Main issue with filming The Great British Baking Show Among COVID-19 is that the white tent poses a great health risk. When the series premiered a decade ago, executive producer Anne Beatty was looking for a certain vibe and beauty to the series.
According to Massed, Beatty landed on a “village fetus” theme. Every year, the magnificent white tent is erected in Wellford Park, Berkshire. However, as we know, the temperature in the tent is unpredictable and uncontrollable. It has very little ventilation which certainly seems as far as coronovirus is concerned.
Since the tent is usually full, there were at least 12 contestants, as well as judges, hosts and crew members with very little space in a week. Living six-feet apart will be very challenging.

This is how ‘The Great British Baking Show’ is secretly filmed
Despite the challenges, it seems that the BBC and Love Productions have introduced a clever way into the film, ensuring the safety of all. Typically, the contestants of the series already have a ton of odds before they can snag one place in the competition.
Super is an eight-page long application filled with specific questions. Then, there is a comprehensive interview consisting of a 45-minute phone interview, making two baked goods, completing a screen test, and an in-person interview with a producer. If a contestant makes it past that, they have an in-person culinary audition, and a meeting with a psychologist will ensure that they can be filmed for 16 hours a day.
This year the contestants had to go through an extra step. They were already filming when production was halted. According to Deadline, now that filming has been resumed for two weeks, the crew, contestants and judges were all separated before they started filming. Also, the set was moved to a different location to make quarantine easier.
