Allen Blames Tv Show Flop On Studio

Pop star LILY ALLEN has blamed the commercial failure of her new TV talkshow on the studio where it was filmed - vowing to change locations for the next season. The Smile singer filmed her TV debut - Lily Allen and Friends - at Pinewood Studios in Hertfordshire, England, 30 miles (48 kilometres) west of London. The programme was deemed a flop after it failed to attract high enough ratings, with its first episode only scoring 255,000 viewers - just two per cent of the potential audience. But Allen, 22, is convinced that moving the show to a central London venue will help boost ratings for the second series, which has just been commissioned by British TV channel BBC Three. She tells British magazine New!, "The type of audience that loves me will travel to a club in London but won't travel all that way outside of London to a studio. "Pinewood also lacks atmosphere because its so cavernous."
