The £100k Drop has been reportedly dropped from Channel 4 schedules after almost a decade.

The mega money show, presented by Davina McCall, began life as The Million Pound Drop in 2010 and aired live until 2015.

Contestants had the chance to win up to a £1 million on the show in its first iteration. The daytime quiz challenged contestants to gamble their prize money on multiple-choice questions, which they could lose when they answered incorrectly. 

The show returned in a new daytime slot in May 2018, along with a new title and significantly less money on offer, the somewhat less mouth-watering sum of £100,000 (€117,500).

The series is now winding down after 120 episodes of the second version of the programme.

"There are no current plans for The £100k Drop to return to Channel 4," a spokesperson for the station told RadioTimes.com.

"We’d like to thank Davina and the team behind the show for the numerous nail-biting moments.

"Viewers can look forward to a host of exciting new daytime commissions on the channel in 2020 and beyond."

McCall is to become a judge on ITV’s new series The Masked Singer, where celebrities perform songs while disguised in outlandish costumes.

She will join Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and actor Ken Jeong (The Hangover) on the judging panel. The series begins on Saturday January 4.
