FLIRTY DANCING 'AXED' BY CHANNEL 4 AFTER TWO SERIES
Ashley Banjo's dance-themed dating series Flirty Dancing has reportedly been axed by Channel 4 after two series, including a celebrity special for Stand Up To Cancer.
The series sees two disillusioned daters taught two halves of the same bespoke dance. Across a week they train separately, working with Ashley and his team to get to grips with their routine.
The pair then meet for the first time in a cinematic setting where they don’t speak, just dance, deciding afterwards based on the dance alone whether they want to go on a second date. Shot throughout the UK, in a range of glorious, real world locations and with two sets of singletons paired up per show, will it be love at first dance?
A source told The Sun: "Flirty Dancing was a brilliant show but when Covid hit it became too difficult to film. Once it was safe to go again, bosses decided the appetite for the show was over and Ashley was really busy working on other projects. Ashley ended up making loads of money off the show though as he sold it to America."
Flirty Dancing aired on Channel 4 and All4.
