Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh of the holiday quiz show Take Off have been glitched, according to reports.
The popular presenting duo seemed to have scored a sure-fire scoreline as they launched a prime-time quiz show that saw audiences compete for luxury vacation destinations.
Produced by Holly’s husband Dan Baldwin, the show that aired last year failed to resonate with viewers and is now said to have been quietly ‘controlled’ by Beeb.
A source told Sun: “Take Off was filmed before the pandemic when commuting was much easier.
“Now it’s more difficult with a lot of restrictions. It doesn’t come to grounded viewers.
“However, Holly and Bradley enjoy working together and have great on-screen chemistry.”
Last summer, Bradley, 61, admitted: “If I’m being honest, I don’t know the rules.

“I gave it to Holly — she’s the one who knows it all. Holly is brilliant in that area.”
This Morning presenter Holly is currently working on a range of TV shows as she leaves ITV daytime, including BBC1’s Freeze the Fear With Wim Hof, with comedian Lee Mack, 53 .
This shows celebrities pushing themselves to their limits in freezing conditions under the supervision of Wim Hof, also known as the Iceman because he specializes in cryotherapy.
She also recently joined ITV’s The Games alongside Freddie Flintoff, which sees celebrities train and compete in sporting challenges.
The week-long series received mixed reviews from viewers back home.
And after hitting about 2 million viewers on Monday night’s launch, ratings have begun to drop, with 500,000 viewers dropping on Tuesday.
Other fans at home noticed that the audience at the live show got up and left before the show ended.
They were taken back to their seats and told to wait until the credits ended.
One person present during the filming of the show said: “Quite a few people started getting up, even though we were told to wait until the end.
“The show is still going… it’s not just a handful, it’s remarkable,” they added.
The show is not an entirely new creation, first shown 16 years ago on Channel 4 but canceled after four series.

Take Off isn’t the first time the pair have worked together, having presented the sports comedy show Play to the Whistle from 2015 to 2017.
Ahead of the 2021 show debut, Bradley said: “It’s been great to work with Holly, it’s amazing, I don’t just say that because she’s here and she’s my life partner that I totally have that means.”
