A third series followed in 2008, although it was originally planned to air in 2007.

Ladette to Lady returned on ITV for Series 5 on 20 July 2010. The series saw the return of the familiar staff.

The series has been parodied on The Charlotte Church Show as Lady to Ladette, in which, conversely, prim and proper girls are taught by Church and some of her raucous friends to behave in a more ladette-like manner.
