The producer of the hit TV show American Idol has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez will be returning as a judge for season 11.

Nigel Lythgoe has spilled the beans ahead of an official statement from Lopez, who recently announced that her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony had come to an "amicable" end.

Lythgoe told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show: "I believe we are still waiting for the official announcement, but I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season."

The other judges include Randy Jackson and Aerosmith's Steve Tyler.

It has been reported that the multi-talented actress and singer is in negotiations with bosses of the show over a pay rise, which might not be too much of a problem given that her presence on the talent show has helped skyrocket viewing figures.

Fox News has yet to comment.

Lopez, who has been married three times, recently told Vanity Fair that despite their best efforts she and her husband could no longer make their marriage work.

"Sometimes it doesn't work - and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love."
