Gest surprised everyone when he became a viewer favorite on the British reality series I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here. That gig led to a role as a judge on Grease Is the Word as well as his own documentary series This Is David Gest.
Both Grease and the documentary series have failed to draw viewers, however, and Gest has been let go from ITV with six months left on a one-year contract.
ITV boss Simon Shaps said: We dont have any plans for him. Were not signing him to another deal Im not sure what you would do next.
Weve got to match the talent with ideas and we havent had any ideas for him. I wouldnt rule out working with him in the future.
