111115-BILLY_main.jpgABS-CBN released a statement on Billy Crawford being replaced by Luis Manzano as host of "Celebrity Playtime." 

Luis Manzano will be replacing him as the show's host due to Celebrity Playtime's new change of time slot. 

Below is the statement in full: 

On November 14, ABS-CBN will launch its newest reality dance competition "Dance Kids," which will be aired Saturdays at 6:15 PM and Sundays at 6 PM.

In line with this new program launch, "Celebrity Playtime” will be aired at 10:30pm every Saturday after "Your Face Sounds Familiar."

Every Filipino family will enjoy "Dance Kids" and the back-to-back fun brought by the celebrity transformations in “Your Face Sounds Familiar” and the exciting party games in “Celebrity Playtime.”

Following these programming changes, ABS-CBN and Billy Crawford’s management ALV Talent Circuit Inc. have decided for Billy to relinquish his hosting job in “Celebrity Playtime” to Luis Manzano. Billy would love to continue hosting the show but unfortunately, he can’t be seen in two consecutively airing programs.

ABS-CBN thanks Billy for his dedication to “Celebrity Playtime.” He remains as one of the most respected hosts of the network, and his fans can still watch him in “Your Face Sounds Familiar” on weekends and “It’s Showtime” from Mondays to Saturdays.
