The show ran from 2001 to 2003 and was the iconic programme that launched Will Young and Gareth Gates’ careers.

An ITV insider said that ‘absolutely nothing is confirmed at this point’. However, any talks are understood to be at ‘an early stage’.

He said: ‘I can confirm that ITV ARE in talks to revive Pop Idol, 20 years after it finished on TV in 2003.’’

‘A revival is not confirmed yet, but with @tvukzone, we can verify that they are looking at a return,’ TV writer Super TV wrote on Thursday. 

The iconic series, which debuted twenty years ago in October 2001, set the blueprint for future TV hits including The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice UK.
