THE CRYSTAL MAZE 'AXED BY CHANNEL 4'

The Crystal Maze has reportedly been dropped by Channel 4 after its revival in 2016.



The series, presented most recently by Richard Ayoade, was demoted to E4 last year in an afternoon slot. Celebrity specials of the series most recently played on Channel 4 over Christmas and New Year.



An insider told the Daily Star: "The Crystal Maze is being ditched. Execs have no plans to make a new series. It is an iconic show, but no series is guaranteed to run indefinitely...


"The pandemic has meant some tough decisions have to be made. Channel 4 has the option to bring it back in the future, but right now that's not looking likely any time soon."



Channel 4 have made no official comment.
