Say goodbye to watching Family Guy on your TV because BBC3 is being axed in autumn 2015, it has now been confirmed.

The news comes as a petition on Change.org to ‘save BBC3′ hits 65,000 signatures.

BBC bosses finally announced the closure of their sister channel today, revealing over half of the £50million savings will be ploughed back into enhancing BBC1.

While the savings will enable the corporation to launch a BBC1+1 service, £30,000 is expected to be invested in BBC drama.

And director general Tony Hall has warned staff that this might not be the end of changes to their channels, saying he ‘can’t rule out it being the last change to our programmes or services’, according to the Guardian.
