‘The Million Pound Drop’ launched on 24 May 2010 with Davina McCall fronting the show’s eleven series to date.

It saw pairs of contestants playing to win £1 million in prize money, the biggest score ever was £250,000.

It has been revealed today that Channel 4 have axed the show, although there’s no news about The Jump’s future.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: “Bosses have decided to put their money into other shows and there are no plans currently to bring back Million Pound Drop.

“People say it’s a shame as it had a big following.”

A Channel 4 spokeswoman confirmed: “Million Pound Drop is not currently in the schedule but could come back at some stage.”

The Jump which is also hosted on Channel 4 has caused major injuries to the celebrities taking part, Beth Tweddle had to have two vertebrae in her neck fused together after a serious incident training for the show.

A source for the show claimed: “The feeling among the show team is that this has been the worst series yet,

“After so many injuries, the celebrities are terrified of everything — and then the viewer ratings have fallen off a massive cliff. Yes, there has been a lot of controversy about people getting injured, but that isn’t the problem. At the end of the day, this comes down to business.

“The show is just not pulling in the viewing figures to justify the huge amount being spent on it.”

Although Channel 4 have denied that The Jump has been axed.
