Richard and Judy to quit their digital show

Friday May 8, 2009

Richard and Judy have decided to call time on their chat show after ratings for it failed to live up to expectations.

The husband and wife TV team – who've worked together on the small screen for 21 years – will front their final show on digital channel Watch on July 3.

"Some you win, some you lose," the pair said in a statement. "It’s a shame we couldn’t get this one to fly because both we and our brilliant young production team were genuinely proud of the show and the guests it attracted."

When it debuted in October the show was watched by 100,000 viewers and, despite slumping figures, it continued to draw A-list guests, including Helen Mirren, Samuel L Jackson and Mickey Rourke. 

The couple say they plan to go "on to other projects, together and separately"
