Gest Axed By ITV

Published on July 13, 2007 with No Comments

David GestDavid Gest has been dropped from a UK TV station – because they don’t know what to do with him.

Liza Minelli’s ex signed a one year deal with ITV after impressing the producers with his stint on British reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here last year.

Gest was given his own fly-on-the-wall series and a judging role on music show Grease Is The Word – but both were flops and the network’s bosses have decided to let him go.

“We don’t have any plans for him. We’re not signing him to another deal – I’m not sure what you would do next,” said ITV boss Simon Shaps. “We’ve got to match the talent with ideas – and we haven’t had any ideas for him.”

But Shaps said it was not the end of Gest with ITV. “I wouldn’t rule out working with him in the future,” he added.
