Channel 4 has reportedly axed The 5 O'Clock Show after just one series.

The tea-time programme was created to replace The Paul O'Grady Show and featured a series of guest presenters, including Fern Britton and Peter Andre.

It had been rumoured that one of the guest hosts could land the series on a full-time basis.

However, The Sun reports that the show has now been cancelled and replaced by Jamie Oliver's new cooking programme.

"It was felt the show didn't work," an insider told the paper.

O'Grady will launch his new Friday night show on ITV this week.
