TV flop Young Talent Time a hit on the stage
Host ... Rob Mills.
It may have flopped on the small screen, but Young Talent Time is booming on the stage.
On Monday, the Channel Ten talent show will announce three more stage shows to keep up with its "overwhelming" popularity as shows across Sydney and Melbourne continue to sell out.
The latest announcement brings it to 16 shows.

Promoter of the shows, Mark Morrissey, said the tour, designed to continue the talent show beyond series one, was organised in nine weeks.
"The response out there has been overwhelming for the shows," he said.
Host of YTT, Rob Mills, said that, since the beginning of the show's relaunch in January, he had been "approached by strangers" thanking him for the family-friendly show.
"It's a show that [says] it's cool for kids to get up and sing and dance," he said.
But in late March, the show was pulled from its prime-time Sunday timeslot to Friday night, prompting fears that there wouldn't be a second series.
"I'm not really fussed where it is as long as it find its audience," Mills said of the time change. "As long as it's on, I don't get caught up with the ratings of it all."
This website understands that Channel Ten is still in negotiations about whether to commission a second series.
But this won't stop Morrissey from preparing another tour of the show in September and then again in December.
"If there is another series it will be bigger and better," he said.
