Pitch Battle AXED: BBC cancel Mel Giedroyc’s show after just one series 'It ...

Hosted by Mel Giedroyc, each episode saw six choirs and vocal groups of all different sizes and musical genres battle it out for a place in the Grand Final.

To progress, the groups had to impress the panel of musical judges consisting of choirmaster Gareth Malone, recording artist Kelis, along with changing guest “superstar” judges.

However, it seems the competition failed to win over viewers in the ratings and has been cancelled after just one series.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed to Express.co.uk: “We are proud of ‘Pitch Battle’ and would like to thank everyone involved in the show but we sometimes have to make difficult decisions in order to make room for new shows so it will not be returning to BBC One next year.
