ITV has cancelled hypnotism show You’re Back in the Room after two series. The broadcaster has opted not to move forward with Series 3 due to low ratings, The Sun reports:
Viewing figures slipped to just over three million by series two, as producers struggled to find decent celebrity names who were keen to make a fool of themselves on primetime telly. Now bosses have put the show out of its misery entirely.
A source said: “The show got mixed reviews but not bad ratings at first but ultimately the balance between great names and keen people couldn’t keep going.
“ITV thought Phillip did a brilliant job as host. His commentary was hilarious and he loved doing the show but he’s got some new formats coming up for the channel and sadly something had to make way.
“They’re sad it’s dying a death as there’s not really a show of its kind on telly right now, but after two series it had done its job.”
