The 'RuPaul's Drag Race' star, who joined the competition show for its second season, admits he was not surprised by the axing after learning about social distancing guidelines for coronavirus.

AceShowbiz - Todrick Hall is confident his BBC TV show "The Greatest Dancer" will be back on air, after blaming the coronavirus crisis for its recent axing.

The program, which also starred British pop star Cheryl Cole and former "Glee" actor Matthew Morrison on the judging panel, pitted dance hopefuls against each other as they competed for a grand prize of $62,000 (£50,000), and the chance to perform on U.K. TV talent show "Strictly Come Dancing".

However, after just 2.8 million viewers tuned in for the most recent finale - in which Michael and Jowita were crowned the champions - bosses at the BBC are said to have decided to pull the plug on the series.

Speaking to the U.K.'s Daily Mail newspaper, "RuPaul's Drag Race" star Todrick, who joined the show for its second season, insisted, "When I heard about all the social distancing I wasn't surprised (it was cancelled)."

"If the audience can't be there it won't work," he explained. "It's like 'The Voice' with no judges and spinning chairs."

However, the former "American Idol" contestant is hopeful for a comeback, adding, "I think there's hope (it could return). We had a great time doing it - me and all the other captains loved it."

"That show gives people an awesome experience to be creative. The production value is one of the best I've seen. And I love that it was about the dancers - they weren't in the background. Everything was awesome - the costumes, staging, props - all of it telling a story."
