Shooting Stars Moves from TV to Corporate Entertainment

7th December 2011

Bob Mortimer and Vic Reeves’ surreal TV panel show Shooting Stars is making the move from TV to corporate entertainment, as its run at the BBC comes to an end.

Other comedians including Mark Lamarr, Ulrika Jonsson, Johnny Vegas and Will Self were among the regular panellists, while Matt Lucas kept the scores in his guise as "big baby" George Dawes.

Mortimer, whose comedy partnership with Reeves extends back to the 1980s, told fans of the show's cancellation on Twitter.

A BBC spokeswoman commented on the departure of the due: "In future there will be less space on BBC Two for comedy/entertainment panel shows so sadly Shooting Stars won't be returning," said.

"We'd like to thank Vic and Bob for everything they've brought to the channel over the years," she said.

The mock quiz originally ran from 1993 to 1997, returning twice - first in 2002, and again in 2009.
