Popstar To Operastar is expected to return for a second series next year.

ITV's group finance manager Ian Griffiths revealed that the programme has landed a second run at ITV's Interim Results Meeting earlier this week.

The reality show, which was hosted by Alan Titchmarsh and Myleene Klass, was rumoured to have been dropped by the broadcaster following disappointing ratings.

However, it picked up 4.04 million viewers for the live final and performed better than similar shows in the Friday evening slot such as Marco's Kitchen Burnout and Michael Winner's Dining Stars.

No details on the hosts, judges or when a second series will air have been announced.

Pop Idol's Darius Campbell triumphed in the first series, beating Bernie Nolan in the final. Other popstars who took part in the competition, which challenged singers to learn how to perform opera, included Kym Marsh, McFly's Danny Jones and Blur's Alex James.
