UK TV producer Nigel Lythgoe, who created So You Think You Can Dance, says it’s time to move on from reality television and the b grade nobodies that it creates.

Speaking at the National Radio Conference on the Gold Coast, Lythgoe said reality television was partly responsible for creating disposable celebrities who have no real talent.

An insider suggested there were some ears burning and beetroot faces amongst the audience, specially from one network head that once gave the direction to chase anything that showed 'promise' from numerous Reality TV programmes.
