The BBC has bowed to pressure and said it will revamp its heavily criticised Wimbledon highlights show after a volley of abuse from viewers over the format.

The revamped Wimbledon 2Day was hosted by Clare Balding from a private members club near the lawn tennis club and had the presenters chat with members of a live studio audience often with very painful results.

Tennis fans took to Twitter in their droves decrying the show, branding it an almighty 'balls-up' by the broadcaster. Many viewers likened it to spoof BBC drama W1A and called for more tennis and less chat.

Today the Beeb finally relented to pressure and announced that from tonight Clare Balding will present the show from a studio above Centre Court.
