David Hasselhoff has reportedly been axed from 'Britain's Got Talent' as bosses didn't feel the chemistry was right between him and fellow judges Amanda Holden and Michael McIntyre
David Hasselhoff has reportedly been axed from 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The former 'Baywatch' star and comedian Michael McIntyre joined the judging panel of the ITV1 show alongside Amanda Holden earlier this year following the departures of Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan, but bosses are already set to get rid of him because he "had no connection" with the acts.
A source said: "David was a great booking at the time. We thought he'd bring loads of laughs and warmth but it didn't work out. He was fun but had no connection with the acts.
"The panel lacked sparkle and it was reflected in the acts that went through."
TV chiefs also thought Michael was too nice to contestants, but are keen to keep him on the judging panel because they don't want him to deflect to rival network BBC.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "ITV want a new panel as it didn't work this year. Most acts were below par and the chemistry just wasn't there."
A 'Britain's Got Talent' source said: "It is too early to confirm the panel for the next series."
