The Heat Is On is a BBC talent show that was a regular fixture on the Saturday night schedule between 1990 and 1994. The show was originally hosted by comedian/impressionist Bobby Davro, with his catchphrase of "They're in heat, so vote with your feet!" sweeping the nation. Davro left the show in 1993 after a Sunday tabloid published an expose on his cocaine-fuelled prostitute orgies. Despite this setback though the programme continued to be a ratings winner and the show was nominated in six categories at the Baftas ceremony later that year.
After continuing with a succession of guest presenters (including Jill Dando, Lenny Henry and a then 12-year-old Jamie Oliver) the show was eventually cancelled in late 1994, after an unfortunate incident during filming for that year's Christmas special.
Producers of the show have included former presenter Chris Kelly.
Notably, a six-year-old Dylan Mills (aka Dizzee Rascal) appeared as a performer on the show. His five-minute act included an array of circus skills.
