Popular Channel 4 reality show plunged into doubt as it's pulled from TV schedules after just two series | The Sun

A POPULAR Channel 4 reality show has been pulled from the TV schedules after two series in the latest shake-up.

The broadcaster's gruelling reality competition The Bridge has been dropped from the schedule.

Presented by AJ Odudu, it sees 16 strangers come together for the chance to win the big cash prize, but unaware of the epic challenge required to take the money home.

The show tested the hopefuls' physical, mental and teamwork ability with £200k on offer.

Adventurer and explorer Aldo Kane oversaw the contestants as they took on the nerve-inducing challenges.

However, The Sun understands a third series hasn't been commissioned and the show likely won't air this summer.

Its future remains up in the air with discussions about another instalment said to be 'active' between Channel 4 and its production company Workerbee.

A show source said: "Channel 4 have not yet committed to another series of The Bridge.

"While execs are still in active discussions over a potential third series it's not looking likely it will return this year."

When approached for comment a spokesperson for the broadcaster said: “Conversations are on-going about future series."

Last year's winner of The Bridge Kim Blackman, split her £175,000 prize with competitor Shaun Pelayo after they began a romance on the show.

The Bridge's uncertain future comes as AJ is believed to have signed up to host the Big Brother revival on ITV2.

The Sun exclusively reported last November how the TV star had agreed to take on the role, vacated by Emma Willis.

It is a major promotion for AJ, 34, who previously co-presented Big Brother spin-off show, Bit On The Side, in 2013.

A source said at the time: “AJ has been offered the Big Brother job and jumped at the opportunity. It’s a huge boost to her career.

“AJ and ITV are still ironing out details in her contract but she has told a lot of people the job is hers.”

Big Brother is coming back later this year following a six-year hiatus.
