Britain’s Got More Talent ‘axed by ITV bosses’ to concentrate on main show

Britain's Got Talent's sister show Britain's Got More Talent will reportedly not be returning next year.

The ITV2 show has been a spin-off show for the talent show for 12 years.

A TV insider reportedly told the publication: “Stephen is a much-loved member of the BGT family and everyone loved him on the show.

“It will be sad to bring the curtain down on it after so many years of laughs.

"But it is important to move with the times, and the reality is younger audiences who once watched it now consume a lot more of their content online.

Before adding: "The plan is to focus more on the digital platforms — clips for social media and things like that.”
