Sorry to break the news to you, Hoff. You’ve been fired from your job on Britain’s Got Talent.
After a dramatic drop in the ratings, the actor has been axed from the show because he “lacked sparkle” with the other judges, Michael McIntyre and Amanda Holden.
An insider says:
“David was a great booking at the time. We thought he’d bring loads of laughs and warmth but it didn’t work out. He was fun but had no connection with the acts. The panel lacked sparkle and it was reflected in the acts that went through.”
Another complaint producers had was that The Hoff had difficulty understanding contestants’ accents, which made things awkward. And it looks like the rest of the judges are on the chopping block too as the insider adds, “ITV want a new panel as it didn’t work this year. Most acts were below par and the chemistry just wasn’t there.”
Sorry to see you go, Hoff, but it looks like it just wasn’t the right fit.
