ITV has reportedly decided not to commission new episodes of Birds of a Feather after Pauline Quirke left the show.
The comedy - centred around sisters Sharon (Quirke) and Tracey (Linda Robson) and randy friend Dorien (Lesley Joseph) - returned for a one-off Christmas special last year, with 3.1 million viewers tuning in.
Quirke was notably absent from the episode, however, with press reports suggesting that she had been involved in a row with Robson that led to her exiting the series she had been part of since it started in 1989.
Robson recently branded the rumours "codswollop" but according to the Daily Mail, Quirke's departure has led to ITV dropping the show.
"Without Pauline, the view is that there is no Birds Of A Feather," a source told the newspaper.
"You cannot have Tracey without Sharon, and there is no way Pauline will be going back. Things are bad between her and Linda.
"Linda and Lesley gave it a go but, despite the figures being good, ITV won't be recommissioning it."
At the peak of its popularity the show brought in almost 20 million viewers in the 1990s.
