Nigel Lythgoe Predicts Death of Strictly
We recently reported that there were fears of the show being cancelled and now it seems that Lythgoe thinks that the BBC could be flogging a dead horse.
Talking to The Guardian, Lythgoe claimed, “There were too many episodes of Strictly… there’s burnout. I imagine Strictly will go off air, and come back in 10 or 12 years.”
Although the last gap between the original series and the revamp did the show good, we’re not sure the gambit would work the second time.
“I think that in the UK once something’s successful it’s wrung out like a sponge and gets overdone.”
