Gordon Ramsay dealt another blow as BBC axe his cooking show after poor ratings

Gordon Ramsay pays tribute to Jock Zonfrillo

The decision to axe Gordon Ramsay’s series Future Food Stars comes after only two series of the programme, and mere weeks after the cancellation of his ITV show Next Level chef.

According to TV Zone, the series was cancelled after unfavorable ratings which caused viewer numbers to drop to just one million for the series finale.

In fact more people tuned in to ITV1’s repeat of It’ll Be Alright On The Night.

The show, which followed in the footsteps of famous BBC show The Apprentice, saw contestants battle it out in a combination of culinary and entrepreneurial challenges in order to win £150,000 towards their business.

This is not the first of TV chef Gordon’s shows to be dropped by the BBC, with his game show Bank Balance lasting only a season back in 2021

His ITV cooking show Next Level chef was also dropped recently due to poor reviews, where many claimed that it was “too American”.

Speaking on future food stars, a source stated to The Sun that “Gordon is highly competitive and he’s gutted the series wasn’t given a second run”.

They added: “These types of shows always take a while to get going and for viewers to connect, so he thinks it wasn’t really given a proper chance.”

The source went on to say that “he accepts TV is a brutal world and sometimes shows just don’t work out”.
