Seven dismisses Idol rumours
Seven denies rumours and reaffirms Idol reboot for 2022.
Seven has rejected a media report that suggested Australian Idol would not air in 2022.
On Monday New Idea fuelled speculation the rebooted talent show had been nixed amid some disagreement between Fremantle and Seven over the series being pre-recorded.
An unnamed source suggested Fremantle “wouldn’t budge on the format of relying on the Australian public to vote on a weekly basis.”
It even claimed The Voice: Kids had been momentarily approved before falling over.
A Seven spokesperson told TV Tonight, “As we announced in October last year, Australian Idol will be on Seven in 2022.”
Seven still has The Voice and Australia’s Got Talent to come in 2021.
