Nadiya Hussain’s ‘The Hajj’ series axed from BBC

For yet undisclosed reasons, BBC has pulled the plug from Great British Bake Off star Nadiya Hussain’s ‘The Hajj’ which Hussain was to make a pilgrimage to Makkah
The two-part TV series has reportedly been axed. The series was  set to show the TV presenter as she left her home in the UK to join the millions of muslims who are currently making the annual journey to Saudi Arabia.

The BBC announced last year she would be fronting the documentary show, having previously completed the Hajj for the first time in 2013.

She said at the time: “The Hajj is one of the most intense and emotional experiences you can undertake and I’m delighted to be sharing my journey with BBC One viewers. I’m really looking forward to showing first-hand exactly what it is like to be there.”

But according to reports in the UK, the broadcaster has axed the show.

Top Hat Productions, the company which was tasked with making the show, confirmed to the Daily Mail that it had been pulled.
“Unfortunately, it’s not happening,” executive producer Marisa Verazzo was quoted as saying.
