Stars in their Eyes axed

'Stars in Their Eyes' has been axed from ITV.

The Harry Hill fronted singing show - which launched in February - has been cancelled after just one series due to low ratings.

The show - a reincarnation of the hit 90s version fronted by Matthew Kelly - attracted just under two million viewers a week, compared to 10 million in its heyday, losing out on audience numbers to rival BBC One show 'The Voice'.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "There are no plans to bring it back.

"Bosses liked it but it just didn't resonate with the viewers."

It is thought the series - which sees contestants dress up and mimic their favourite popstars - has been unpopular as it offers no real prize for its talented winner unlike 'The X Factor' and 'The Voice', which offer recording contracts.

Meanwhile, Harry, 50 - who is best known for his 'Harry Hill's TV Burp' series - recently filmed a pilot for a new afternoon chat show.

The programmed, entitled 'Harry Hill's Tea Time' has been described as "TV burp meets cookery".
