'Desperate Scousewives' could face the chop after just one series after viewers failed to "warm" to the E4 show's characters
'Desperate Scousewives' could face the chop after just one series.
Channel 4 bosses have yet to commission a second season of the E4 reality show - starring the likes of Elissa Corrigan, Debbie O'Toole and Abbey Clancy's cousin Chloe Cummings - after it failed to be the hit with viewers they had hoped.
With channel chiefs - who are also responsible for London-based series 'Made In Chelsea' - thinking there is only room for one reality show on the network, it is thought 'Desperate Scousewives' could be axed after audiences failed to "warm" to the characters.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "We had hoped 'Desperate Scousewives' would really give 'TOWIE' a run for its money. But sadly that's not been the case. For whatever reason people have just not warmed to the characters and there hasn't been a great buzz.
"'Made In Chelsea', on the other hand, is really popular. People seem fascinated by their posh lives."
'Desperate Scousewives' star Chloe Cummings has previously claimed the cast of the E4 show are much "more glamorous" than their reality TV counterparts.
She said: "We're more glamorous than 'The Only Way Is Essex' and 'Made In Chelsea'. The girls on 'Desperate Scousewives' are gorgeous. In Liverpool, we have the comedy as well. Everyone is comical."
