Sad news for Hannah Montana fans as Disney confirm the next series of the hit TV show will be the last.

The show about a high school student who leads a secret life as a pop star, started in 2006 and made actress and singer Miley Cyrus into a global star.

The 17-year-old, who's created a successful film and music career off the back of the show, recently said she wanted to concentrate on her music.

Now Disney say the show is due to end after filming on the new series ends.

Disney Channel boss Adam Bonnett told American newspaper the New York Post: "You never know in this business... but right now we're scheduled to wrap after shooting."

The last episode is due to be shown in March 2011, with Mr Bonnet promising a "a big one-hour event" where we find out what Miley Stewart's decision is going to be.

"It's one of the things she's been wrestling with for months - whether it's time to make a decision to continue being Hannah Montana or just be a regular, ordinary girl," he said.
