Hammond leaves the Secret Service

Richard Hammond's prank TV show Secret Service has been dropped by the BBC after one series.

The broadcaster confirmed that a second season of the Saturday night programme, which sees the Top Gear presenter lead a team of "secret agents" who carry out missions for the public, will not be made.

A spokesman told The Sun that the show will not return to screens, but added: "We're talking to Richard about other projects."

It follows the axe of game show Total Wipeout in 2012 after six series.

Richard, also known as Hamster, made a triumphant return to screens with the 20th series of Top Gear alongside co-presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May, which was watched by 4.7 million viewers.

"Thanks for kind comments on new #TopGear It only gets better from here. See y'all next sun," tweeted the 43-year-old.
