Richard and Judy have admitted to scepticism over the new plans to save breakfast TV on ITV.
It was announced earlier this month that Strictly Come Dancing star Susanna Reid had been poached from BBC Breakfast and would be heading up a new, revamped morning show on the commercial television channel.
The mum of three will be joined by hosts such as Ben Shephard on the sofa, while current presenter Lorraine Kelly will return to her own show from 8.30am each day and Aled Jones will be bumped to a Saturday only programme.
Chloe Madeley, daughter of presenting duo Richard amd Judy has become embroiled in a drink driving scandal. Stupid little girl.
Police were called to the scene of a car accident at 4am on Sunday morning but the driver was nowhere to be seen. Police then traced the Peugeot 206 back to one Miss Chloe Madeley, who was reportedly hiding out at her parents home in Barnet.
Richard and Judy have decided to quit their chat show, after ratings remained ridiculously low.
The final installment of the show will air on July 3, a year after they signed to the channel.
The couple said in their statement: “Some you win, some you lose. It’s a shame we couldn’t get this one to fly because both we and our brilliant young production team were genuinely proud of the show and the guests it attracted.
TV duo, Richard and Judy have admitted that if their new show on TV channel ‘Watch’ doesn’t pick up ratings soon, they may leave the show and channel altogether.
The pair were paid £1 million each to move from Channel 4 where they regularly drew in ratings in the region of three million, however on a recent episode of their new show they were watched by just 12,000 people.
Yesterday Richard said: “The series is planned till Christmas 2009. If it doesn’t work, it’s not the end of the world.” Richard told Jo Russell’s Absolute Radio Show: “When you go to a new channel, let alone a new programme on an existing channel, of course the ratings are going to be incredibly low compared to before. They just die.

It’s the end of an era as the golden couple of British television bring their Channel 4 show to a close after seven years.
