BBC 'COMMIT TO TWO MORE SERIES' OF WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
The BBC have reportedly committed to two further of Who Do You Think You Are?, but there's doubt over the future of the factual series beyond that.
The Sun reports that once the two series have been delivered, it's likely that the BBC will either shelve or axe the long-running series due to lack of celebrities available with an interesting history to explore.
The most recent series saw a host of celebrities including Ed Balls, Dame Judi Dench, Pixie Lott, Joe Lycett, Alex Scott, Joe Sugg and Josh Widdicombe unravel their family history in a new seven-part series.
A TV insider told The Sun: "The BBC has committed to two more series but that’s a surprising step given that the last didn’t set the world on fire...
They continued: "The show has been on our screens since 2004 and at one time was always packed with incredibly famous faces including Kate Winslet and Boris Johnson. But in recent years viewers have felt quality of the names have diminished and the stories aren’t always the most gripping."
Episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
Who Do You Think You Are? is produced by Wall To Wall Media for BBC One.
