Irish campette Graham Norton’s Saturday night variety show Totally Saturday (cringe) is to be consigned to the dustbin after a massive slump in ratings.

The programme was to be the BBC’s answer to ITV’s popular Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, though the number of viewers is reported to have dropped from 4.3 million to 2.5 million.

Where did it all go wrong Graham? Once you were Channel 4’s post-watershed darling. You brought us the doggy phone and supplied battery-operated devices to the elderly. You were the late-night television evangelist. Now you’re frolicking with giant hamsters.

Reliably acerbic Jonathan Ross commented: “Poor Graham, I feel for him watching that show.?

Totally Saturday will air for the last time in two weeks, one week earlier than scheduled.
