Glee is making another Britney Spears-themed episode.
The hits of the new X Factor judge - who made a cameo appearance on the show in 2010, drawing a record number of viewers for the musical drama - will be used in the second episode of the fourth series of the program later this year, but the singer herself will not be in any scenes. Unlike Britney's first Glee tribute, the new episode will not
focus on her namesake in the show, EW.com reports.
Eight Britney tracks will be used in the episode, which will air in its new Thursday night slot - immediately after The X Factor results show.
Meanwhile, Glee actor Chris Colfer has revealed that Sarah Jessica Parker's recently-announced cameo on the show will see her play a mentor to his character Kurt Hummell: "I just found out last night that Sarah Jessica Parker is coming on our show to be my mentor of sorts."
Kate Hudson will make a six-episode appearance in a role that is described as very "dance heavy" and believed to be a mentor to Rachel Berry, the character played by Lea Michele.
Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker are to appear in Glee.
The actresses will both appear in the forthcoming fourth season of the TV musical drama series, though details of their roles are being kept under wraps. However, broadcaster Fox have confirmed the former Sex and the City star will appear in at least one episode, while Kate's storyline arc will last for six episodes.
The network also vowed the show - which experienced a drop in ratings during the current season, which ends on May 22 - is "poised for a creative renaissance" when it returns in a new Thursday night slot later in the year. Fox's entertainment president Kevin Reilly explained the program will become a "show within a show" following some of the McKinley High graduates as they attend a New York performing arts school, as well as introducing "some new faces" at the main Ohio educational establishment.
