Meet The Richardsons is set to end after five series on Dave. It follows the news of the stars Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont's divorce, which was announced by the pair in a statement on social media.

Meet the Richardsons delves into the funny and frustrated lives of then-married comedians Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont who, playing exaggerated versions of themselves, give viewers a glimpse into their home and work lives, surrounded by their celebrity friends and their neighbours.

Before the current series, which continued on Monday nights, launched, Lucy admitted that this series would probably be the last. Speaking to OK!, she said: "This will probably be the last one, and we’re going out on a high."

Joining the Richardsons are Adrian Chiles, Alexander Armstrong, Amanda Abbington, Ben Shephard, Carlton Palmer, Carrie & David Grant, Charlie Cooper, Cheryl Baker, Dick & Dom, Gregg Wallace, Julian Clary, Kemah Bob, Kimberly Wyatt, Lee Mack, Matt Forde, Max Rogers, Nigel Havers, Roland Gift, Stephen Mangan, Steve Pemberton, The Cheeky Girls, Tim Lovejoy and Toyah.

In this series, Lucy’s career is turbo-charged by her BAFTA nomination and she’s getting offered shows from the very big to the frankly bizarre. Jon is fine with Lucy’s success, he’s not competitive at all, and he knows when he’s beaten.

So, while Lucy’s busy on Taskmaster, Bake Off and Celebrity Chinese Whispers, Jon is plotting his escape from telly, with one last, lucrative job hosting a new daytime Quiz show. Meanwhile, at home, a global superstar and her partner move in next door, making it harder than ever to keep up with the neighbours.

Lucy’s turning 40 and she’d really like Jon to go with her to Glastonbury to celebrate. He’ll never agree to that. But will they both agree that five series of Meet the Richardsons is more than enough?

Meet The Richardsons continues Mondays at 9pm on Dave and UKTV Play.
