BBC bosses have axed The Greatest Dancer.
The Simon Cowell show, which saw Cheryl, Strictly’s Oti Mabuse and Glee’s Matthew Morrison and singer-songwriter Todrick Hall as judges, was not impressing with its ratings.
And now it’s claimed the Beeb have decided to get rid of the programme.
A TV source said: “The writing was on the wall a while back.
“Now the BBC and everyone involved has decided enough is enough and they’ve binned it.
The insider continued telling The Sun: “Critics liked it and it pulled in a younger audience. But the cost of the big production for the ratings the show delivered was too much.”
The show pulled in just 2.8million viewers for its final episode.
According to reports, this prompted bosses to tell staff who worked on it that they should make alternative plans as it wouldn’t be coming back.
The programme was even beaten by long-running BBC drama Casualty .
A BBC spokesman confirmed: “Whilst there are no plans for a further series, we are proud of the show and would like to thank everyone involved.”
Some fans seemed surprised and saddened by the news, with one Twitter user writing: “Very surprised, our daughters all loved it!”
While another added: “The show was a breath of fresh air and was better than The Voice and The Masked Singer… if it had a different time slot it could’ve succeeded.”
However, another wrote: “It was nowhere near as good as The Masked Singer.”
With another chiming in: “Not surprised, the ratings for the second series weren’t good from what I remember.”
