The Greatest Dancer pulled by BBC after two series

TV talent show The Finest Dancer continues to be cancelled after two series, the BBC has confirmed.

The Greatest Dancer

The show, located by Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, featured celebrity dance captains including pop star Cheryl.

The 2nd series, which led to March, attracted around 3.two million viewers every Saturday evening.

“Although there aren’t any plans for any further number of The Finest Dancer, we be proud of the show,” the BBC stated.

A spokesman stated the organization “want to thank everybody involved with getting a lot of memorable moments to BBC One”.

Produced by Simon Cowell’s Syco production company in 2019, The Finest Dancer battled when facing ITV shows such as the Masked Singer and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Latin ballroom duo Michael and Jowita were the newest winners from the show, earning £50,000 and also the chance to do on Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly ‘changes’

BBC entertainment controller Kate Phillips has stated she’s “searching cautiously” at just how to create Strictly back this fall – however that the format can change due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“That’s absolutely our big priorities, ensuring we are able to provide you with an excellent Strictly,” she stated on Tuesday. “However I think inevitably things are likely to change.”

It isn’t always correct that traditional “shiny floor” light entertainment shows require a studio audience, she added.

“Whenever you take a look at something similar to Drag Race, that is a big shiny floor talent competition with a variety of catwalks, singing, dancing, impressions – it never comes with an audience.

“The crowd may be the four idol judges and that i don’t believe it is affected with that whatsoever. It is a great show.”
