No more Talent

Britain’s Got More Talent, which has always been presented by Stephen Mulhern aired some of the whackier acts who came to audition

Bosses have decided to end the series and focus on the main show and its social media channels. A TV insider said: “Stephen is a much-loved member of the BGT family and everyone loved him on the show.

“He is still incredibly busy, with lots of exciting projects for ITV. Behind the scenes, executives decided it was the right time to move on.

“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.

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

BGMT included interviews with the judges after the BGT live shows, which produced some hilarious moments including Amanda Holden throwing water over Stephen when their banter got out of control.

A BGT spokesman said: “As our 18-34 audience share continues to grow and viewing habits are changing, naturally we are listening to viewers and focusing more on digital platforms.”
