ITV has dismissed suggestions The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent are set to be ‘rested’ or cancelled altogether.
In a statement to RadioTimes, a spokesperson for the UK broadcaster gave the veteran reality show’s the verbal vote of confidence, insisting both will be around for years to come:
“The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent contracts come up for renewal after the latest series’ air later this year, and we fully intend to continue with both shows into 2017 and beyond.”
RadioTimes.com understands that a new ‘bundle’ deal for both shows will be announced by the time Britain’s Got Talent’s comes back on air this April.
