According to reports the BBC has axed Saturday evening show Hole In The Wall after two seasons. The celebrity fronted show launched in 2008 but last year’s season failed to match the strong ratings of its debut and so the corporation has reportedly decided to cancel the series to try out new formats. Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke was a team captain on Hole In The Wall in its first season before being promoted to a presenter for the second. The cancellation of the show will be a blow to the dancer who is widely tipped to be dropped from Strictly’s next season.
BBC bosses are said to be revamping Strictly Come Dancing once again in the hope of regaining a ratings lead over ITV rival The X Factor. As part of the revamp bosses are hoping to lure high profile celebrities, possibly introduce a new judge and also new professional dancers. Some media outlets have tipped Du Beke for the axe after he caused a minor race-row during the last season of the dancing competition.
