In news that’s sure to come as a shock to Friday night TV viewers, Channel 10 has decided to axe popular show The Living Room. 

The network has confirmed the 7:30pm show will not be returning to our screens in 2020, after seven years on air.

However, the presenters, Amanda Keller, Barry Du Bois, Miguel Maestre and Dr Chris Brown will continue to appear in an unconfirmed show in the same time slot.

Amanda Keller took to her WSFM radio show to chat about the shakeup, alluding to the fact that the decision actually came from the hosts themselves.

“The four of us will be fronting a lifestyle show, but it may not be called, actually I don’t think it will be called ‘The Living Room’,” she said.

“We’ve been pushing for this for some time”.

Chef Miguel Maestre even took to Twitter to clear up any rumours that the foursome were parting ways with the network.

“The four of us are back next year watch this space same time same place, Friday at 7.30,” he wrote.

The last episode of the show, which saw the presenters delve into the world of cooking, renovations and travel and pets, will air on December 20. 

Launched back in 2012, the show was an initial hit with audiences and won a Logie Award for four years in a row for Most Popular Lifestyle Program from 2015 - 2018. 

Last Friday night, the show brought in just 337,000 metro viewers, coming in behind Channel Seven’s cricket stream.
