John Barrowman's BBC show 'Tonight's The Night' has been axed after three series

John Barrowman's 'Tonight's The Night' has been axed.

The BBC Saturday night show - which began airing in April 2009 - has been on screens for three series, but has now come to an end, much to the 45-year-old actor's disappointment.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "John's very disappointed. He loved the show and knows it was popular."

The show - which is filmed in Glasgow, Scotland - picked up around four million viewers per episode, and those who watched were treated to members of the public singing with big-named artists and daredevil stunts performed by unsuspecting people.

A BBC spokesperson has confirmed 'Tonight's The Night' would not be making a comeback this year.

John recently landed a role in a US TV series branded as the country's answer to 'Downton Abbey', although it is not known if it has been commissioned for a full run by network ABC.

A source said: "This is a big role for John. If it is successful, it would mean spending most of the year filming in the States."
