A new, fourth series of Cruising With Jane McDonald is to be screened, the singer and presenter has said on social media.

The Channel 5 show has been praised for helping to boost cruise sales among lines, and has been filmed on board MSC, Princess Cruises, AmaWaterways, Viking and American Steamboat Company ships, among others.

McDonald, who has spoken at travel industry events since the popular show hit the screens, took to Twitter to confirm speculation that a fourth series was on the way.

Details of the destinations and cruise lines to feature in the new series are yet to be announced.

The show was nominated for a BAFTA at this year’s TV awards in the features category.

A Channel 5 spokesperson confirmed that the programme was due to return for a fourth series and said destinations would be announced “closer to transmission”.
