corner silicone interference with shower screen channels

Hi all,

Almost finished grouting (just floor grout still to do) my bathroom/utility room and then need to silicone round the wall to floor joints/corners.

I have the shower screen channels to screw to the walls and these should sit tight to the floor. I know if you use a shower tray the usual instruction is to fully seal round the tray before fitting the wall channels. I'm fitting directly to the floor but I guess the principle is the same.

If I run a silicone bead along this bottom corner, then it will be in the way of the back of the wall channel and I won't be able to fit the channel right down to the floor. What's the best approach here? Make the silicone seal, then cut a bit away slightly where the wall channel is to go? Or make a little chamfer on the back of the wall channel to clear the silicone bead?
