It looks like the forthcoming sixth season of Jersey Shore will be the last for Snooki and her castmates.

MTV have confirmed that the sixth series which will premiere in October will mark the end of the hit reality series.

The network is set to commemorate the end of the programme with a one-hour special entitled Gym, Tan, Look Back on 6 September.

The episode will feature interviews with the Jersey Shore cast and a sneak peek of the sixth series, plus there will be a look back at some of the show's highlights since it began in December 2009.

The news comes after Snooki, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, gave birth to her and fiance Jionni LaValle's son Lorenzo Dominic on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Mike The Situation Sorrentino is currently starring in UK reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother.
