ROMEO & DUET 'SET TO BE AXED BY ITV AFTER POOR RATINGS'

ITV are reportedly set to axe dating format Romeo & Duet after one series, according to reports from The Sun.



The seven-part dating series, produced by Goat Films, has aired over the past six weeks in the Saturday night 7pm slot on ITV, with all episodes recording less than two million viewers.



A source told The Sun: "This will be gut-wrenching for Oti as it was her first solo presenting gig since quitting Strictly to pursue new opportunities...


"Expectations were high for the programme as she is immensely popular with the public and Romeo & Duet was given a prime-time slot. Rubbing salt in the wound is the fact that the series hasn’t even finished — the final episode airs this Saturday."



Romeo & Duet gives its singers just one song to entice a singleton down from the balcony. Only then will the two come face-to-face for the first time.



The newly formed couple will then head off on a duet-date to learn a duet before returning later in the show to perform that duet in the ultimate romantic love battle; a singing competition against the other couples to be crowned the winners.


ITV say no decision has been made on future series.



Romeo And Duet concludes Saturday 11th June at 7pm on ITV. Watch previous episodes now on ITV Hub.
