A spokesperson for Channel 5 has now confirmed to Digital Spy that 5* will not be airing any further episodes in the near future.

However, the rep suggested that it is a temporary hiatus, revealing: "The show will be back in the summer."

The latest season of American Idol saw returning judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban joined by brand new panellist Harry Connick Jr, who has been a regular mentor on the show in the past.

5* poached American Idol from ITV2 in September 2012 and aired the 2013 series - which featured Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey - in the same week as its US broadcast.
