Lorraine Kelly’s TV show AXED in shock decision

Lorraine Kelly’s TV show has been axed in a shock decision.

The TV legend has been fronting primetime gameshow Wedding Day Winners on the BBC alongside comedian Rob Beckett.

But the show, according to the Daily Star, was panned by critics and was a ratings flop, so now has been cancelled by the channel.

Lorraine told the publication: "It was a great show and I loved doing it. But it’s OK because I have got my hands full doing my breakfast show to be honest. I’m a lucky girl to get to do what I do."

And an insider also admitted this was the case, adding that even Lorraine’s starpower did not make the show as strong as it should have been.

The source said: "Everything was done to make Wedding Day Winners a success but it just didn’t work. Light entertainment is a hard area to get right. There have been quite a few casualties in recent years.

"Lorraine is popular but her move to primetime didn’t prove to be the success everyone thought it would be."

Wedding Day Winners only lasted six episodes last year.

The show was a surprise move for Lorraine from breakfast to primetme, but luckily for her she says doesn’t look at social media, so was unaware of fans’ negative reactions.

Lorraine said: "I don’t look on social media. That would be madness. You know if you’ve done something that’s OK, or you know when you could have done better.

"If you start taking social media seriously it’s the wrong thing to do. While there is a lot of positivity, there is also a lot of negativity.

"You have to do your own thing – you have to paddle your own canoe."
