Skins Axed

Skins has been axed and show bosses are reportedly planning to screen three special farewell episodes next year, according to reports.

The current sixth series of Skins is thought to be its last, but a number of former cast members are being lined up to star in next year's trio of two-hour specials, including Nicholas Hoult, who played Tony Stonem in the first series.

A channel insider told the Daily Star: 'We think Skins has gone as far as we can take it but we know fans will be disappointed. So we think three episodes to really celebrate the series is a good send-off.

'There will be all the usual drama as we wave goodbye to some top characters.'
