Investigation by Big Four firm reveals viewers spent £6.5m on worthless calls

An investigation by Deloitte has revealed that the Saturday night
Takeaway show misled viewers into spending £6.5m on worthless calls for
competitions they could not win.

The shows presenters Ant and Dec apologised to viewers after the show was
named and shamed. The two also announced they were giving the competition
profits from the series to charity as a gesture of goodwill,

reported.

Pressure is now mounting for greater levels of disclosure by TV stations
following allegations of rigged competitions on shows such as the X

, Soapstar Superstar, and Gameshow Marathon.
