According to The Sun, the warning reads that they cannot have any, “social arrangements,” with any of the contestants. 

It also reads that all, “personal contact,” is banned until atleast six months after the show is aired. 

A source told The Sun, “Simon and the team have made it very clear this year that crew should not be getting any closer to those on the show any more than they need to in a professional manner.''

“They weren’t happy last year about one of the crew and Myles hooking up.''

“They felt it was something they didn’t need to tell people not to do, and yet it still happened.''
