'Soapstar Superstar' axed after two series
Soapstar Superstar has been dropped from the ITV lineup despite its success during the last series.

It has been running for only two years and last year's final pulled in roughly 7 million viewers.

However, executives at ITV have decided that the show has run its course. A source told The Sun: "ITV1’s new bosses think it’s time to give it a rest.

"They feel it is a bit too similar to X Factor. We know this won’t go down too well among some viewers — but we are planning to come up with other great shows instead."

A spokeswoman for the broadcaster said: "We have decided to rest Soapstar Superstar next year. But it may well come back one day."
