Geri Horner's BBC singing show All Together Now is axed

The singer fronted the talent competition

All Together Now, the BBC singing contest fronted by Geri Horner, has been given the chop after its second season.

The talent competition's unique concept saw contestants sing to a panel of 100 music professionals to compete for a £50,000 prize.

Spice Girls singer Geri, 46, was at the helm of the show, alongside presenter Rob Beckett.

There were high hopes for the new programme, which had a primetime slot on Saturday night TV.

A source told The Sun: "The show was good fun and seemed to rate well. It had solid ratings and the BBC commissioned a second series, so clearly saw some promise in it.

"But after two airings and a celebrity special, which was won by EastEnders' Laurie Brett, they've decided to leave it there. They thought Rob and Geri were a great team and are now seeing what else they can do with them."

The show looked set to rival other popular talent series like The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent but it's future has now been cut short.

Geri would sit on the 100-strong panel and  members of the panel would then stand up if they liked the wannabe singers' performances.
