I’ve just realised that BGMT is one of four Talent/Reality spinoff shows that are still on air.

1. It Takes Two

2. Extra Camp

3. More Talent

4. Aftersun

How The Xtra Factor got axed and BGMT didn’t, I’ll never know.


BGMT is far better, because it doesn't take itself too seriously- Mulhern is a great live presenter. Xtra Factor changed its presenter(s) every year, so never really managed to get a fanbase that stuck. Also, the humour from the hosts on Xtra Factor was extremely forced usually, while Mulhern is naturally funny, in my opinion.

How many more reality shows are still on air that had spin off shows? I can only think of Dancing on Ice.

Jeremy Vine/The Wright Stuff had The Wright Stuff Extra with Gabby Logan which later renamed itself to Live With

Mind you, the "what BBC/ITV region you live in" drop-down menus for our Profiles right here on TVF also persist in being infuriatingly selective/inconsistent about how up-to-date/stuck-in-the-past they are. (e.g. we still have a Central South option. Also, Westcountry & HTV West should actually now be West Country west/east. And yet we do have STV Central/North options, rather than persisting with calling them Scottish/Grampian) Rolling Eyes Mad Thumbs down


As well as London, rather than Carlton/LWT

I agree there should be some consistency. It should either use the old names (for nostalgia purposes), or the current names, but not a mish-mash of both.

Speaking of which, the ITV logo needs updating.

I guess really the likes of ITV2 stand up on their own now and aren't so reliant on pulling viewers over from a parent brand, though really when you think about it only The X Factor has really dropped it's spin-off in recent years.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

The Bake Off has a spin-off show presented by Jo Brand as well.

I've always loved the Countdown Extra sketch, does a brilliant job of taking the piss out of everything that's wrong with these spin off shows. And the fed up and sarcastic Des as the beginning sums up his attitude when he was the Countdown presenter too, he always seemed as if he didn't want to be there.

Used to love BGMT but around the time Catchphrase launched it became more about Mulhern than BGT and I find it an excruciating watch now.

Bake Off: Extra Slice almost works independently of Bake Off. And for me Xtra Factor failed when it became more about Z-listers opinions and less about the contestants themselves. It was at it's best in the early years when it aired on Friday nights as a preview to the live show.

*I'm A Celebrity 2019: Extra Camp hosts Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash fired

Wonder if they'll be approacing Holly, although I can't see it happening as it would probably tip Philip over the edge!
