ITV 'axes' quiz show after first series | The Sun

ITV has axed one of its quiz shows after just one series.

Fastest Finger First – which debuted on the broadcaster last year – is waving goodbye after failing to impress fans.

Fastest Finger First, hosted by Anita Rani, saw five contestants compete for a guaranteed place on the next series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

The ITV programme ran for just five episodes, selecting the new contestants for Jeremy Clarkson's programme.

However, after just one series – it has been reported that the show has been axed with no set return date.

TV Zone revealed: "The daytime spinoff series to ITV gameshow Who Wants To Be Millionaire is set to be shelved.

Fans have the same complaint after ITV announces ‘middle-aged Love Island’

Maternal viewers rip into ITV’s ‘disappointment’ as they fume ‘don’t bother watching!’

"There are no plans for the series to return when Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returns to the studio in February."

It comes after viewers of the ITV show couldn't resist making a VERY rude joke about a genius contestant.

One episode saw Seb, John and Rachel play against one another to win a place across from Jeremy Clarkson on the main show.

John, from Port Talbot, impressed viewers immediately, making it through to the head-to-head segment.

He then had to face off against the other contestants as they took it in turns to dethrone him in one-to-one rounds.

But after four rounds, John hadn't budged, as his lightning fast fingers were quicker than anyone else and he had made it through to an upcoming episode of Millionaire.

Fans were thrilled for John, but some couldn't help but make X-rated jokes about his skills.

One crudely wrote on Twitter: "The speed of John’s fingers… I bet his wife’s a happy woman!!"

Another added cheekily: "John’s very popular with the girls in Port Talbot, the speed of those fingers I'm not surprised…"

Elsewhere, Anita, 44, left viewers saying the same thing about her bold outfit choice.

Eagle-eyed fans of the show pointed out how Anita’s striking purple ensemble was akin to that of the set of the ITV show.
