Janice published a statement regarding her departure: "I wanted to let you all know I will no longer be working at Ideal World.

It has been a very difficult decision to make and I have given it a lot of thought and consideration.

 

I have worked with amazingly talented people over my time at Ideal World and over my 10 years I have made friends who will remain friends for life and gained many friends here on facebook. I would like to thank you all for your support.

Every time I turned up for work I would have a smile on my face and joy in my heart knowing I was going to do a job I loved and was very lucky to have.

I hope you gained knowledge from me and enjoyed the shows that I was a part of.

Leaving any job can be stressful but when you are leaving behind such great people its even harder.

 

I wish the company and all its employees the very best for the future."
