Fox has cancelled its New Year’s Eve special, Toast & Roast 2022, over fears about the Covid-19 Omicron variant.

Community stars Joel McHale and Ken Jeong hosted last year’s broadcast and were due to return to host this year, for the special which airs from New York City’s Times Square.

In a statement, the channel said: ‘While we are confident in the health and safety protocols for Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022, the recent velocity of the spread of Omicron cases has made it impossible to produce a live special in Times Square that meets our standards.

‘We will not be moving forward with Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022 in New York.

‘The health and safety of our casts and crews has always been, and will continue to be, of the utmost importance.’

They added that ‘alternative programming’ will be announced soon.

The broadcast was also set to include iHeartRadio performances from Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Billy Idol and Pink, with Trace Adkins set to perform live.

Fox is the first network to cancel its New Year’s Eve broadcast.

However, it’s the latest of a string of events to be cancelled, or downsized, with Saturday Night Live recently scrapping its studio audience.

Meanwhile, London’s New Year’s Eve celebration in Trafalgar Square has been cancelled.

Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was ‘in the interests of public safety’ to stop 6,500 partygoers coming together.
