Pitch Battle has been axed after just one series on BBC1.
The Saturday night a cappella show was launched with great fanfare earlier this year and featured an impressive line-up. The Bake Off’s Mel Giedroyc served as presenter, while judges Gareth Malone and Kelis were joined by guest judges including Chaka Khan, Joe Jonas and Will Young.
But the show was not a hit with viewers or critics, and now the BBC has confirmed it will not be returning.
The format pitched six choirs against each other, with only one taking away the £50,000 prize.
The ultimate winners were Leeds Contemporary Singers, a vocal harmony group who triumphed in the first – and now only – series.
