This is sad we loved this show!!
BBC show Total Wipeout that was a big hit has been axed according to the Daily Mail.
The show will return just for one more series before the show says it fairwells!
The show is hosted by To Gear presenter Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram.
Sources have told Daily Mail that the show gets ’reasonable’ ratings and the bosses feel it had ‘served its purpose’ after six series.
A spokes person for the show said:
‘After four very successful series of Total Wipeout, and one series of Winter Wipeout, the BBC has taken the decision that the next series, due for later this year, will be the last.’
The latest series got over 3.85million viewers and the normal series from January to March last year pulled in an average of 4.8million.
The show is about 20 contestants compete a course that is over a big pool of Walter and at the end of it all the contested could win £10,000.
But its not for the faint hearted as In 2009, two celebrities sought legal advice over injuries they had sustained while filming Total Wipeout.
The show has been a big part of Saturday night TV and will be sorely missed!!
