Justin Lee Collins's shows Heads or Tails and Good Times have been cancelled, according to reports.

The two shows, both shown on Five, were apparently axed after disappointing ratings. Heads or Tails failed to attract a million viewers, while Good Times was watched by fewer than half a million, says The Sun.

A source said: "Justin is a top bloke but finding him a hit has been an upward battle for Five.

"Heads or Tails was a reasonable format but it was a bit one-dimensional and viewers didn't stick with it.

"Good Times just never hit the mark. Let's face it, chat shows are ten a penny - you need to really stand out. It didn't play to Justin's strengths as he looked like he was constantly fretting about the next question."

Collins will still front a three-part travel series in Japan for Five later this year.
