GORDON RAMSAY'S FUTURE FOOD STARS AXED BY BBC AFTER TWO SERIES
IF YOU MISSED IT - JULY 2023
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.
