London, Dec 17 (ANI): Pop star Lily Allen recently admitted that her BBC show called Lily Allen and Friends was a major flop.

The singer revealed that although the show was badly panned by the critics, it helped her make a lot of money.

It was a period when I decided not to be a singer or go on tour, the Sun quoted Allen, as saying.

I made a lot of money out of it. Thank you, licence-payers that was very nice of you. You think Russell Brand is your problem. Actually, its me, Allen added.

Despite the fact that the show was a flop, BBC bosses have decided to go ahead and film second series of the show.

Im thrilled that were going to make a second series. Its been such a laugh. I want to say a huge thank-you to everyone who tuned in to the first one and I cant wait to film series two, Allen said

A BBC insider said: Not everything has to be a massive ratings success on the BBC. Lilys show was aimed at younger viewers who dont read newspaper reviews or care about them. We were happy with how the programme performed and it was a good effort for someone who has never fronted a television show before. (ANI)
