"It has been a privilege to call this a 'job'," said the 56-year-old.

"After so many years filming abroad, I am looking forward to some much-needed time in the UK and to focus on my music and tours and exciting new projects.

"Thank you, Channel 5, for some great trips and many fabulous memories."

Director of programming at Channel 5 Ben Frow said: "We've loved working with Jane and are proud to have had her as part of the family.

"She helped us to win our first Bafta and her series have become solid staples of our Friday night schedules.

"Thank you, Jane. We are sorry to see you go but wish you every happiness for the future."
