She’d become synonymous with the channel thanks to her hit Cruising with Jane McDonald series.

Taking to her blog as her departure hit the news, she shared: “By now you will have seen the news about me stepping away from my shows on Channel 5.

“It’s been an incredible four and a half years of travelling, 38 cruises and over 100 flights. It’s now time for me to spend some time in the UK, concentrate on my music and tours and exciting new projects.

“I want to offer my most sincere thanks to everyone who has worked on all my shows. Everyone at Channel 5 and Viacom International Studios who have all helped make the most incredible and successful programmes.

“It’s been a total joy to work with everyone and thank you very much to everyone who has watched and supported the shows. I have had a blast!”
