A Channel 4 reality show may not get the green light to return in what turned out to be the station’s latest schedule shakeup.
The Bridge, which is hosted by host AJ Odudu, has apparently been dropped and will not air this summer like the previous series, however bosses have claimed that discussions surrounding the show are “ongoing”.
A source on the show reportedly told the Sun: ‘Channel 4 has yet to commit to another The Bridge series.
“While executives are still in active discussions about a possible third series, it doesn’t seem likely that it will return this year.”
Asked for comment, a spokesperson for the broadcaster said: “Discussions are ongoing regarding future series.”
The end of The Bridge? A Channel 4 reality show may not get the green light to return in what turned out to be the station’s latest schedule shakeup.
Unlikely: The Bridge, which is hosted by host AJ Odudu, has apparently been dropped and won’t air this summer like the previous series, however bosses have claimed that discussions surrounding the show are “ongoing”.
In the show, 16 people join forces to win big prize money, but are unaware of the challenge that awaits them before they can take home £200,000.
In the challenge, a group of strangers must work together to build a floating walkway, using wood and rope. They are given all the tools but none of the experience.
The contestants were carefully supervised by explorer Aldo Kane as they completed challenging challenges to compete for the cash prize.
The first team to build a bridge and cross it to the hidden treasure wins the money, but only one player can take it home.
Kim Blackman, who walked away with the £175,000 prize last year, split her winnings with competitors Shaun Pelayo after romance blossomed on the show.
The first series of the show was filmed near a lake in North Wales before the location was changed to a much more exotic Vietnam for the second series.
The prize money was doubled from £100,000 and the competition was also doubled, with two teams competing for the money.
With Bridge’s future hanging in the balance, its presenter AJ is believed to have signed up to be the new presenter for the revamped edition of Big Brother on ITV2.

AJ sent Big Brother fans into a frenzy when they claimed that she dropped a huge hint that she will be hosting the next reboot.
The presenter has reportedly been in talks with ITV2 bosses to headline the much-anticipated revival later this year, and she quickly caught the attention of fans when she hosted the Eurovision Song Contest semi-final draw on Tuesday. .
Hosting the giveaway with Rylan Clark, AJ repeated one of former Big Brother host Davina McCall’s most iconic catchphrases, leading many fans to claim that she must have landed the hosting job by now.
AJ and Rylan hosted this year’s Eurovision draw in the host city of Liverpool, with the UK set to host the European music event on behalf of champions Ukraine, with the country unable to host due to its ongoing conflict with Russia. .
During the show, as AJ was preparing to draw another country during the draw, he said, ‘Would you like another one?’
She said that? AJs sent Big Brother fans into a frenzy when they claimed that she dropped a huge hint that she will be hosting the next reboot.
The catchphrase was echoed by Big Brother host Davina as she was preparing to introduce a housemate who would be heading to the house.
So it came as no surprise that Big Brother and Eurovision fans were quick to take notice of AJ’s joke, with some quick to claim that this must mean she will be hosting the revival.
One tweeted: “AJ Odudu said Davina’s iconic line ‘fancy another one?’, during the assignment draw… that may be a tease for her to be our new Big Brother host.”
Another added: ‘No AJ Odudu with the Davina “fancy another one?”, while a third posted: “AJ Odudu we know you’re introducing Big Brother with that “fancy another one?”
AJ organized the Eurovision semi-final draw, which revealed which countries would compete in each of the two semi-finals.
