Bedell exits ITV

January 28, 2016

ITV’s director of entertainment and comedy Elaine Bedell has decided to step down after seven years.

Bedell, who joined ITV in 2009, oversees some of the network’s biggest programmes including Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and The Brits.

She will leave ITV at the end of February in a move that some suggest is the first sign of an upcoming top level clear out by incoming director of television Kevin Lygo.
