Anne is weakest in the US.

Byline: BRENDON WILLIAMS

ACID-tongued Anne Robinson has been voted the Weakest Link - with rumours the US is about to say "goodbye" to her show.

Just like the Welsh, it seems the Americans have had enough of the TV presenter and could be about to boot her into touch.

Just a year after landing a lucrative contract - reported to be pounds 15million - to present The Weakest Link in the US, her audience ratings have plummeted.

American network NBC have confirmed the show is one of several "on the bubble" with its future hanging in the balance.

Robinson received a barrage of criticism for her offensive remarks about the Welsh on the BBC's Room 101 last year.

Robinson's agent said: "We've not been told officially that the show might be axed in America.

"Yes, the ratings have fallen but NBC says they are very happy with the demographics of who's watching."
