'Ireland's Got Talent' is no more, so if you're planning an act for this year, you'd better rethink it.
The reality TV series, which showcases Irish people's weird and wonderful talents, has come to an end at Virgin Media Television. In a statement released to media last night, the producers referred to "to a combination of logistical and scheduling reasons."
"Virgin Media Television are tremendously proud of the show and how it has raised the bar for production in Ireland. We look forward to unveiling our new season schedule as we continue to increase our commitment to great content and original Irish programming," the statement read.
Previously, judges on the series included Louis Walsh, Michelle Visage, Denise van Outen and Jason Byrne. Produced over two seasons since 2018, contestants competed for a chance to win €50,000 in prize money.
The winners of Season 1 were a dance troupe from Cork called RDC, whilst the second season winners were BSD, another dance troupe from Dublin this time.
Viewing figures had begun to steadily drop for 'Ireland's Got Talent' for each season. In the first season, the opening episode garnered 470,000 viewers whilst the second season's opening episode only attracted 330,000 viewers.
It's not yet known what will replace the slot that 'Ireland's Got Talent' occupied, however Virgin Media Television are set to announce their autumn / winter schedule in the coming weeks.
