After five series, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie's reality TV show 'The Simple Life' is to end.

The Hollywood Reporter says that US TV network E! confirmed that the show's current fifth season would be its last.

'The Simple Life' debuted on Fox in the US in 2003 and ran for three seasons before moving to E! in 2006; the show's audience is down 20% on last year.

In a statement E! said: "'...Simple Life' has been a wonderful addition to the E! schedule for two years, and we will always be grateful to Paris and Nicole for their hard work and graciousness."
