Here’s how the channel announced the news today…

The Trisha Goddard show will not return to Five after its current run finishes later in 2009, it was announced today, (FRI).

After more than four years of production for the channel, Five has taken the difficult decision to not renew the contract with production company Town House TV.

Dawn Airey, Five’s Chair and CEO said: “Trisha Goddard has been a tremendous asset to Five’s daytime schedule. I want to thank Trisha and the production team for their years of dedication and hard work.

“It is with great sadness and regret that we’ve come to this conclusion, but in the present economic climate, it feels like the right time to go our separate ways. We are currently reviewing all our business practices and contracts and need to focus our resources on the most commercially critical parts of the schedule.”

Trisha Goddard said: “I have enjoyed my time at Five but I look forward to exciting new challenges ahead.”

    Just for once I would love it if in response to one of these anodyne “sacking” press releases instead of being all magnanimous the person concerned said something like:

    “What? They’ve sacked me? The f***ing ungratefull b*stards! After all I have done for them. And Dawn Airey is a f***ing c**t!”.

    Still I aint sorry to see her go. Can Jeremy Kyle be next please?

    There’s a lot on TV that needs axing. This programme was one of them.

    I wonder if she regrets not signing that ITV contract five years ago?

    Blimey. If cheap daytime filler like this is now deemed economically unviable, then where the hell does that leave the rest of Five’s output?
