Cape Town – Gareth Cliff is leaving Idols SA.

The radio personality is leaving the popular singing competition after serving as judge for eleven seasons.

He announced the news on his Facebook page on Monday.

"It’s time! After eleven seasons of Idols, it’s time for me to say goodbye. What better way to bring this chapter to a close than a trip to New York and meeting American Idols judge Harry Connick Jr and being on his post-Idols show - Harry.  What's next? Watch this space," he wrote.

Earlier this year Cliff won a lawsuit against M-Net after he was axed from the show following controversial comments he made on social media about Penny Sparrow. 

He was immediately reinstated as a judge on the show. 

Idols SA confirmed his resignation and wished him well on Twitter.
