The BBC has cancelled Never Mind the Buzzcocks after 28 series spanning 18 years.
As is often the case with the BBC’s axe-wielding, the cancellation is to ‘make space for new shows’.
A BBC spokesperson said:
“After 28 series we’ve decided not to bring Never Mind the Buzzcocks back to the BBC. This will create space for new entertainment formats in the future.
We’d like to thank the team at Talkback, Rhod Gilbert, all the brilliant hosts over the years and of course Noel and Phill for the years of enjoyment they’ve given BBC Two viewers.”
