THE GAMES AXED BY ITV AFTER ONE SERIES

The stripped ITV competition series will not be returning for a second series, it has been confirmed.



The Games, which aired on ITV during May this year, saw 12 celebrities undergo weeks of intensive training ready to go head-to-head in a range of sporting challenges, across a week of live shows amidst fierce competition.



All pulled out of their comfort zones to be coached as athletes, swimmers and cyclists, to compete in the hope of coming top of the medals table and being crowned the winner of the competition.




Hosted live by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff, The Games, the duo were also joined by Alex Scott as trackside reporter and former professional football player and presenter Chris Kamara as commentator for the week of programming.


Responding to a question put by TV Zone, and speaking at Edinburgh TV Festival, ITV's head of entertainment confirmed: "They're not coming back, no."



The Games is available on ITV Hub.
