Shooting Stars Revival Rejected by Sky

Sky commissioners have turned down the opportunity to revive the marvellous Shooting Stars after it was axed by the BBC.

There was twitter outrage after the plug was pulled last year and fans had high hopes of its return with an alternative broadcaster. Sky was offered the show but unfortunately it wasn’t thought to be appealing enough for Sky viewers. For Shame!

In the wake of the shows cancellation, Vic and Bob did go on to win a British Comedy Award for Best Panel Show and the Angelos Epithemiou character won Comedy Breakthrough Artist.

Bob Mortimer sarcastically said of the win “Thank you to the BBC.”
