Challenge Anneka pulled after just two episodes

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Challenge Anneka’ has been pulled off air after just two episodes.
The Channel 5 reboot of the hit series – which was originally on air between 1989 to 1995 – was dropped from the schedule after just half its intended run as the slot is “highly competitive”.
A spokesperson for Channel 5 said: “The first episode of ‘Challenge Anneka’ was enjoyed by 1.25 million viewers, but Saturday evenings are always highly competitive, especially at this time of year.
“The public and critical reaction to Challenge Anneka’s return has been amazing and we have decided to preserve the remaining two shows and reschedule them soon.”
Anneka responded by reminding concerned viewers she “knew” it would be a threat when they went into production on the show that sees her being dared to complete task within a set timeframe.
The 64-year-old television presenter wrote on Twitter: “Thanks if you’ve watched so far! We always knew we were on a ‘floating schedule’ so might be bumped off at any moment. We’ll keep you posted.
“The main thing for me is the projects are all up and running and I love [and] salute our army of volunteers who made this possible.vThank you.”
The former ‘Treasure Hunt’ star added it was time to find a “new home” for the show – which on the last episode saw her help do over a community food hub in Stockon-on-Tees – by posting a snap of her and her colleague Dave.
Anekka wrote on social media: “24 hours to find a new home”.
Meanwhile, the former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ recently revealed how proud she is of the way ‘Challenge Anneka’ featured so many women behind the camera.
She added: “It was mostly women. It was groundbreaking stuff. Many of them have gone on to practically run television.”
