"Our survey says... bye" - ITV plans to rest Vernon Kay's All Star Family Fortunes

9 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Vernon Kay's All Star Family Fortunes will be missing from the schedules for a while, as ITV plans to put the show on an extended break.

The celebrity spin-off of the popular format was revived in 2006 and recently completed its 12th series, with an average of 3.3 million viewers tuning in over the ten episodes.

Broadcast reports that the show is unlikely to be seen on-screen again until late 2016 at the earliest, with a further delay until 2017 also said to be a possibility.

"Family Fortunes is an old favourite and remains very much part of the ITV entertainment slate," an ITV spokesperson said. "We haven't got any episodes scheduled at present but we definitely will be seeing it back very soon."

The final new episode featuring talk show host Matthew Wright and Emmerdale actress Charley Webb is scheduled to air this Sunday, June 14.
