BBC One is working on two more singing talent shows

BBC One is working on at least two more singing talent shows for Saturday nights.

The channel previously launched Gary Barlow's Let It Shine back in January to a mixed response, confirming this month that the series wouldn't return next year.

More recently, Pitch Battle kicked off on Saturday evenings but has proved an even bigger flop with fewer than 2 million viewers for its latest episode.

Undeterred, the BBC is continuing on in the hopes of finding a hit musical format and has at least two more ideas in the works.

One is called The Chart and is being made by Thames TV, who produce both The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent with Simon Cowell's Syco company for ITV.

The format - hosted by Zoe Ball and Roman Kemp (via Deadline) - will be for undiscovered singers who will upload performances to an app. Each week, viewers will then vote for their favourites before the top 10 perform live on the TV show, ending with the number one being crowned.

The second potential show is called All Together Now (via getwestlondon) where everyone is a singer - quite literally.

Performers will took to the stage in front of an audience who can all sing and will be scored based on how many members of the audience stand up and join in.

A pilot is currently being produced by Remarkable TV, part of Endemol Shine UK who make Big Brother for Channel 5.
