Michael McIntyre has quit Britain’s Got Talent!
Comedian Michael McIntyre has announced that he’s quitting as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent after just one year.
Michael has reporteldy chosen to leave so that he can concentrate fully on touring with his live stage shows.
A source said to be close to Michael reports that the star’s fee for judging on BGT isn’t enough to make him pull out of stage shows, which net him a good deal more.
Speaking to The Sun, the source said, “Michael has been weighing it up for a while as he does like the show and enjoyed being on the panel.
“But his first love is comedy and he wanted to embark on a tour and concentrate on that.”
And Michael told the paper, “I absolutely loved being a judge but have been itching to get back on stage myself.
“I wish the show and production team every success.”
The paper adds, “McIntyre’s departure will allow ITV to overhaul the show, which has gone off the boil with mediocre acts and humdrum winners.”
