Sky1 has announced that it will simulcast the series finale of Lost.

The network has revealed that it will air the ending to the cult show at exactly the same time as it is broadcast on the West Coast in the US.

The move, which follows news that a number of countries will receive a simulcast, means that the episode will air at 5am on Monday, May 24.

Sky1's director of programmes Stuart Murphy said: "We are proud of the fact that at Sky1 HD we have a long tradition of running all of our US shows as close as possible to their US transmission date.

"With something as hotly anticipated as the Lost finale, it makes sense to show it at exactly the same time as millions across America will see it."

The finale will be repeated on Tuesday, May 25 at 9pm. Meanwhile, Sky1 will air an evening of Lost programming on Friday, May 28, beginning with Lost: The Final Journey at 7pm. The finale will air again at 9pm, followed by Sky1 specials The End Is Nigh and Top 10 Greatest Scenes.

wonder why they don't do it same time as the east coast, and show it at 2am, as its being billed as a 'beat the pirates' thing - it will still be available an hour before the showing

My fear is that it will end like this ....

John Locke wakes up and goes "oooh what an awesome dream"

Will be a waste of all the time i have invested lol Hope its an amazing ending
