Five announced yesterday it will not be taking John Leslie on as the host of a new TV show.

The disgraced This Morning host had hoped a deal with Five would mean a quick return to TV after he was cleared of sex assault allegations last week.

It follows an announcement at Sky TV that they would not be giving him a job. Plus Channel 4, ITV1 and the BBC have all said it is unlikely Leslie will return to mainstream TV soon.
