"No understanding..."

Shadowy TV vigilante group TV Repair Man has promised to take action over the BBC's decision to axe a popular Saturday show.

The corporation announced last week that it was cancelling Total Wipeout after six series.

Fronted by Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram, Total Wipeout features members of the public racing around huge obstacle courses in a Buenos Aires park. Contestants are pounded and soaked in their bid to win £10,000.

"Cancelling Total Wipeout shows a complete lack of understanding of entertainment media at the highest levels of the BBC," a TV Repair Man statement reads.

"At a time when the orgsnisation has joined the headlong rush into the so-called 'talent show' format with The Voice, there is great need for quality programming like Wipeout. TV Repair Man has no alternative, and will take action.

"Mind you, we can still see that fit Byram woman on Sky."
