Paddy McGuinness has bid farewell to Take Me Out after ITV cancelled the show following 11 series over 10 years.

The network confirmed the show's cancellation on Tuesday.

The TV presenter, who has hosted the Saturday night ITV dating programme since it debuted in January 2010, posted a video on Twitter, saying goodbye to the show.

McGuinness said: "Hello friends. Well, after 11 series it's time to say goodbye to Take Me Out. Eight weddings, six babies and a generation of youngsters who've grown up watching us on Saturday night TV.

"Over 10 years ago, ITV took a punt on myself and the show and for that I'll be eternally grateful. Ten years, God, that's before Tinder and Snapchat, Twitter was a little baby, Instagram wasn't a thing and WhatsApp, well, that were just witchcraft.

"But what I'm most proud of is the success of Take Me Out put dating shows back on the TV map. Thank you to all the boys who braved the Love Lift and most importantly to the stars of the show - the girls.

"I'm going to miss spending my Saturday nights with you. Loads of love and for one last time it's lights out, all out."

An ITV spokesman said: "After 11 series we have decided to say goodbye to Take Me Out.

"We'd like to thank Paddy, the production team at Thames as well as all the contributors who have appeared on the show for all their hard work in making the show such unmissable television."

McGuinness currently hosts Top Gear on BBC Two, which was recently confirmed to be moving to BBC One.
