The next series of Total Wipeout - to be broadcast later this year - will be the last to air on BBC One.

Presented by Richard Hammond in a UK studio and Amanda Byram on location in Argentina, the Saturday teatime show has drawn around 4 million viewers and has also aired celebrity spin-offs.

A BBC spokesperson said: 'After four very successful series of Total Wipeout - and one series of Winter Wipeout - the BBC has taken the decision that the next series, due to transmit later this year, will be the last.'

The show has been produced by Endemol and features the world's biggest television obstacle course in Argentina, where contestants are challenged to cross a series of giant red bouncy balls and race down slippery slopes.

The format has been sold to around 30 territories.
