Davina McCall’s £100k Drop ‘axed by Channel 4’ after nearly a decade
Davina McCall's quiz show £100k Drop has reportedly been axed by Channel 4.
This comes less than two years after the prize money was slashed by £900,000.
The programme first began airing live in 2010 and was titled The Million Pound Drop, enabling viewers to play along until 2015.
It returned to TV in May last year with its prize money slashed by a whopping £900,000 and the format of the show changed to accommodate it being a daytime show.
This meant that the programme no longer aired live and viewers couldn't play along.
A source told The Sun : "With players handling £1million in real cash and the trapdoor twist, Million Pound Drop was one of the most exciting shows around when it launched."
However, the source explained that when ratings fell bosses chose to decrease the amount players could win to save money.
They added: "Unfortunately, lower stakes meant low interest and now they’ve decided to cash out of the Drop for good."
A spokesperson confirmed to the publication that there were no plans for the show to return to Channel 4.
"We’d like to thank Davina and all of the team behind the show for the numerous nail-biting moments," they added.
Jack Whitehall and dad Michael were the biggest every winners of the Million Pound Drop when they played in 2011.
The comedian and his father won £300,000 for their chosen charity.
