BBC axes two popular shows in 'difficult decision'

The BBC has cancelled two popular programmes as it speaks of "difficult decisions".

Eat Well for Less, which sees Diversity dance star Jordan Banjo and greengrocer Chris Bavin help families spend less on their weekly food shop, as well as helping them to make healthier choices, has been culled by the Beeb.

Shop Well for Less with Joanna Page and Melanie Sykes, which helps families change the way they shop without changing their lifestyle, has met the same fate, Birmingham Live reports.

The shows were welcomed by audiences amid the ongoing cost of living crisis.

In the wake of the decision, a BBC spokesperson said: "Sometimes we have to make difficult decisions in order to make way for new shows and we currently have no plans to bring back Eat Well For Less or Shop Well For Less.

"We would like to thank the team at RDF West who produced both series, and presenters Chris Bavin and Jordan Banjo, and Joanna Page and Melanie Sykes, for all their hard work and enthusiasm bringing these shows to our screens."
