An interior design show, presented by Blackburn’s AJ Odudu, has been axed by Channel 4 after being slammed by reviewers.

Producers say there “no plans” for another series of The Big Interiors Battle, which aired in April, as it “did not resonate with viewers”.

The interior design competition series saw eight talented interior designers receive keys to an apartment and were challenged to transform a different room each week.

The contestants’ work was then be judged by Dara Huang, an architect and entrepreneur with clients across the globe ranging from billionaires to the world’s most famous brands.

The winner of the competition, Tara Rodrigues, became the owner of their very own two-bedroom flat in Sheffield.

AJ, a former St Bede’s High School pupil, said the show presented an “amazing” and “exciting” opportunity for prospective homeowners.

Less than half of all Google reviewers (47 per cent) liked the show.

One person said: "In my opinion, the best designer didn't win. I don't think it's fair that one person judges when such a big prize is at stake. It should be a panel of judges."

Another said: "There is little design going on, some really poor and inexperienced designers and it shows. Each week they go shopping, custom make very little, with very little design; consideration."

A third commenter said the show was "disappointing". They said: "It was very subjective and the final winner was clearly not the best designer.  Will not be watching this again.”

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: “Every year, Channel 4, like all broadcasters, makes decisions about which shows to rest, return or conclude to ensure we always innovate and offer viewers the best range of programming.

“Regretfully, The Big Interiors Battle did not resonate with viewers as we would have liked, and there are no current plans for further series.”

AJ, 35, recently finished her presenting role in the Big Brother reboot on ITV. She co-hosted the show alongside Will Best.

Jordan Sangha was crowned champion of the series, walking away with the £100,000 prize.
