Comedian Zoe Lyons has shared her heartbreak over the cancellation of a popular BBC quiz show after only two series. The quiz show, Lightning, was hosted by Zoe on BBC2.

She shared the news and her heartbreak on her Twitter account tweeting: “Sadly all good quizzes must come to an end but I can’t tell you what a joy it was to work on @lightningquiz for @bbc2.”

“We made 2 cracking series and I loved every second of working with my pals at BBC Belfast. Every contestant was a star and you can still catch up on @BBCiPlayer.”

Zoe has over 35,000 fans on Twitter who reacted with sadness to the news. They were sad to see the end of the ‘unique’ quiz.

One person tweeted: That’s a shame, Zoe. It was definitely a very unique quiz, and I actually had an audition to be on the second series, and I thought I might’ve swung it by wearing this in my Zoom audition…Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be, although I do love your jacket! Defo need one.”

Another commented: “That’s a shame, sorry to hear it. Best of luck with all that lies ahead. We will always have our memories, M-E-M-O-R-I-E-S.”

One viewer wrote: “I thought the show properly found its feet in S2. What a shame to axe it now.”

The show makes players compete to win a cash prize of £3000 by answering questions and passing a light from one person to another. If a player is left in the light by the time the timer runs out then they are eliminated.
