Sky1 has finally announced that its popular talent competition Got To Dance will return for its fifth series as a 'major event' next summer.

Viewers recently became worried that the show - which regularly pulls in 1million viewers for the pay-TV channel - had been axed, as it traditionally begins airing at the end of December.

However, Sky has now revealed that it's planning the biggest series yet for 2014, which will conclude with a week of 'super-sized' live finals - each with an audience of 6,000 people.

It has also been confirmed that Davina McCall will be back as its presenter, following speculation that she had quit.

Davina said: "The joy of dance is completely infectious and I was bitten by that bug long ago. Each year I learn something new. Last year it was krumping - whatever next?!

"I couldn't be happier to be returning to Got To Dance and I can't wait to meet more dancers ready to take on the challenge. Lets get to twerk... I mean work!"

Henrietta Conrad, from production company Princess Productions, added: "We are incredibly proud of Got To Dance and as a production team are consistently blown away by the talent that comes forth each year.

"The arena shows have always been particularly special occasions in previous series so we truly can't wait to stage a whole week of them this time around."

The latest run of Got To Dance finished in March with Canadian contemporary performer Lukas McFarlane taking the crown and the £250,000 grand prize.

Auditions for Got To Dance 2014 will take place in the New Year.
