THE fate of Danny Dyer's Channel 5 thriller Heat has been confirmed after a string of brutal reviews.
Former EastEnders pub landlord Danny, 46, starred in the series which was set in Australia.
The four-episode drama aired in July and was stripped across an entire week.
It saw Danny play the character of British ex-pat Steve Cameron who emigrated to Australia with his best friend Brad Fisher.
The cast included Scottish-born actor and presenter Darren McMullen, Jane Allsop, Pia Miranda, Olympia Valance and Neighbours star Richie Morris.
But despite the potential for a second season, Heat won't be back for another run.

"It was a joint venture with Network 10 Down Dnder like other series they've done with big British actors.
"Jason Herbison, who is also the exec producer of Neighbours, only penned one series anyway."
Viewers watched Steve and Brad get together with their families at Brad's huge mansion when a fast-spreading bushfire threatens their lives.
