FRASIER star Kelsey Grammer has confirmed the next series of the long-running sitcom will be its last.

Grammer - who has played psychiatrist FRASIER CRANE in Cheers and spinoff show Frasier for 20 years - admits it is time to bring the EMMY award winning programme to a conclusion.

He says, "It ends next year (04), and we've discussed it. We think it's time to let Frasier go off into some other world. Somewhere where his life goes on. But we'll end it with dignity.

"We've actually talked it out. I've had an image for what the last show should be for the last 11 years, and so I think that's what we're going to do. It's been a great run for me. I mean, it was really lucky. Twenty's like being a cop, and then I'm gonna quit."
