THE writers of Glee have confirmed they are planning a Britney Spears-themed episode similar to those already given to Lady Gaga and Madonna.

Series creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter: “We are writing a Britney Spears episode.”

Murphy refused to confirm or deny whether the 28-year-old Spears – whose hits include Oops!…I Did It Again and Piece of Me – will also appear, but he did say the episode was planned for the new season, which beings in the US this autumn.

Glee, which is currently on summer breaks, remains one of the hottest programmes on the planet right now, with rumours breaking about possible guest stars and cover songs almost every day.

The show also picked up 19 Emmy nominations last week.

But contrary to some online reports, Spanish star Javier Bardem, of No Country For Old Men fame, will not be appearing as a guest in the new season.

Dante Di Loreto, an executive producer for Glee, said in a Twitter message earlier this week: “No, javierbardemjenniferanistonjuliarobertsbradpittelvis katieholmestomcruiseandu2 are not appearing in season 2. But wouldn’t it be fun….”
