Andrew Lloyd Webber rules out any more televised talent shows in 2009

Andrew Lloyd Webber will not be doing any more BBC1 West End talent searches this year, but is hoping to return in 2010 to find a Dorothy (and possibly Toto the dog) to star in his production of The Wizard of Oz, which the Really Useful Group recently acquired the rights to.

It is believed he has put any major plans on hold to concentrate on his  Love Never Dies sequel to Phantom of the Opera which is due to open early next yeat.

Working with Lloyd Webber has proved contentious for the BBC as they have come under fire for allegedly using a chunk of its Saturday night schedule to promote a commercial enterprise.
