Cruising with Jane McDonald has been a cult-favourite show since it began in 2017, and actually won Channel 5 its first ever BAFTA, over 20 years after they first started broadcasting.
And then in February of this year, Jane announced that she was stepping down from both Cruising and her chat show, wanting to back away from the channel to focus on being in the UK and working on her music-based projects.
Then a little thing called the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit, and we all had to spend time at home, whether we wanted to or not.
Now Jane has decided that she would like to get out and sail the open seas again.
Channel 5 boss Ben Frow revealed the news in an interview with The Telegraph, stating: "The pandemic has put a spanner in those works and (Jane) is returning to the channel... Where there's an opportunity to cruise, we'll cruise."
Furthermore, he stated that they have already "signed off on the first of her new cruises", so we may not have to wait too long to see her back on our screens.
Channel 5 previously stated that comedian and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Susan Calman would be helming the Cruising with franchise, but we're not sure what is happening with that.
Susan has got her own show on the channel, titled Secret Scotland with Susan Calman, which airs on Friday nights. As the name suggests, however, that doesn't really involve cruising.
