Piers broke the news to his 7.9million Twitter followers on Friday morning, writing: "That's it for me on @PiersUncensored for the summer. We've had a cracking first 56 shows that started & ended with massive global scoops. Thanks to my brilliant team for all their hard work. I'm off to relax by grilling serial killers in American prisons. Back on air Sept 5."

As Piers hinted at, it seems that he will also be filming another series of his true crime documentary series during his scheduled break too.
