Direk Bobet will serve as consultant of Brightlight Productions' "Lunch Out Loud" (LOL), a report from Pep.ph said.

Recently, veteran showbiz reporter and host Cristy Fermin confirmed the resignation of Vidanes.

"Ang simula ng katuparan ng kanyang mga pangarap ay nag-ugat sa ABS-CBN," Cristy stressed.

Cristy went on to share how she saw Direk Bobet and the 'It's Showtime' team worked hard to make their show last for more than a decade. "Hawak kamay sila, walang iwanan," she said.

The radio entertainment host disclosed that Direk Bobot's reason for leaving is because ABS-CBN allegedly cut down their salary and implemented many strict regulations. "Ang dahilan umano ay kinaltas ang kanyang sweldo at napakarami na raw pinagbabawal ang ABS-CBN ngayon," Cristy said.
