LATEST: Britney Spears is to return to the TV sitcom which gave her a career boost last month (Mar08).
The pop star gave U.S. show How I Met Your Mother its highest ratings ever when she appeared as a lovestruck secretary in an episode on 24 March (08), and now she had agreed to reprise her character, according to reports.
A source says, "The show is ecstatic and so is Britney. She had so much fun the first time around she really wanted to come back. It was a mutual decision to work together more."
The one-episode deal comes just days after Spears' former manager Larry Rudolph admitted the singer loved appearing on the show and talked constantly about it during recent meetings with him. He said, "It was a really positive experience
for her. She talked about it quite a bit the last time I saw her... She wants to do it again."
Earlier this month (Apr08), show executive producer Carter Bays admitted he'd be delighted to have Spears back on the show: "I thought she was great. I was very proud of that episode."
