Alan Carr's Singer Takes It All is axed by Channel 4

Alan Carr’s TV show The Singer Takes It All (opens in new tab) – in which he searched for the next singing star – has reportedly been axed after just one series.

The Chatty Man host presented the Channel 4 talent programme, which saw viewers vote in real time for their favourite contestants through a dedicated app, but the concept has not been awarded a second run, according to Broadcast.

It ran for four episodes last summer, drawing in 1.1m viewers, but ending with just 806,000 for the final episode.


During each episode, contestants had to try to make it to a Gold Zone and could win £15,000 if they stayed there the longest, with Steve Dorsett earning £42,600 after winning three of the four shows.

Of the viewers tuning in, 15 per centchose to vote for which acts they wanted to see progress, with 20 million votes cast throughout the series, Broadcast reported.

The Singer Takes It All also saw Alan joined by celebrity guests including Paddy McGuinness, Rizzle Kicks, Pixie Lott and Jason Manford.
