by | May 26, 2015 | All, TV News

Industry magazine Broadcast are reporting that Nevermind the Buzzcocks has been axed by the BBC after 28 series on BBC Two.

A BBC spokeswoman said: “After 28 series we’ve decided not to bring Never Mind the Buzzcocks back to the BBC. This will create space for new entertainment formats in the future.

“We’d like to thank the team at Talkback, Rhod Gilbert, all the brilliant hosts over the years and of course Noel and Phill for the years of enjoyment they’ve given BBC Two viewers.”

After a string of guest hosts struggled to fill the void left by Simon Amstell,the show took on full time host Rhod Gilbert as a host last year. The series hit a new high under Amstell but fell off the rails when regular team captain Bill Bailey also left the show.
