GORDON RAMSAY'S FUTURE FOOD STARS SET TO BE AXED BY BBC AFTER TWO SERIES
Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars is set to be axed by BBC One after two series due to poor ratings, TV Zone understands.
The Apprentice-style series has aired two series on BBC One, first launching in Spring 2022, and failed to attract a large enough audience for a third series. This has not been confirmed by the BBC, though TV Zone approached the broadcaster multiple times for comment on this report.
Not a single episode across its two series managed to top 2m viewers overnight, with the most recent series finale falling to just 1m - beaten by a repeat of It'll Be Alright On The Night on ITV1. TV Zone understands that the BBC commissioned a second series before the first had aired last year.
The series saw Gordon Ramsay - the world’s most famous chef - on the hunt for country’s most exciting and innovative new food and drink entrepreneurs in an era of subscription boxes, food apps and high-tech delivery services.
Gordon pushed all 12 candidates per series to their limits through a series of relentless challenges inspired by his highly successful career, with a chance of winning a life-changing reward.
Previous series of Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars are available now on BBC iPlayer.
