Sky has confirmed that it will air the third series of Glee and reality show The Glee Project exclusively in the UK.

The broadcaster today announced a deal with 20th Century Fox to show all future episodes of the musical comedy and its accompanying talent competition from the autumn.

Stuart Murphy, Director of Programmes for Sky, said of the agreement: "Glee has been nothing short of a phenomenon, and we're thrilled to secure the future of the show for our customers with this life-of-series deal.

"It's the perfect fit for Sky 1 and we're thrilled to be able to build on the success it has already achieved, and we hope our customers will be as chuffed and excited as we all are."

Reports that Sky had poached Glee from E4 for an alleged £12m fee first circulated last month.

The winner of the The Glee Project will receive a seven-episode arc in Glee's third season. The ten-part contest premiered in America yesterday on the Oxygen network.

Glee was first broadcast in the UK on E4 in January 2010. The second season finale - the last episode to be shown on the channel - will air tonight at 9pm.
