It’s the end of the ride for Subway pitchman Jared Fogle.

The svelte fast food spokesman is expected to plead guilty to child pornography charges five weeks after federal investigators raided his Indiana home, an Indianapolis television station reported.

The U.S. attorney in Indianapolis was due to reveal the details at a Wednesday news conference, according to Fox59 News.

The station reported that Fogle, in a plea bargain deal, will admit to possession of child pornography.

Fogle, who became a bit of a global folk hero after dropping 245 pounds on a do-it-yourself diet of Subway sandwiches, came under investigation last month.

During the July raid in Zionsville, Ind., authorities seized several computers and DVDs from the home of the married dad.

Neither federal prosecutors, the FBI nor Fogel’s attorney Ron Elberger returned calls Tuesday afternoon for comment.

But the former head of Fogle’s charitable foundation was arrested earlier this year on similar charges, with investigators charging that Russell Taylor had more than 500 vile images of children in his possession.

Taylor unsuccessfully tried to kill himself while behind bars in May. He remains jailed on eight counts of child pornography.

And a one-time Florida TV journalist came forward with allegations of creepy comments made by Fogle about underaged girls.

“Middle-school girls are hot,” she quoted him as saying several times.

Subway terminated its 15-year relationship with Fogle, 37, after the 11-hour sweep of his property in a tiny Indianapolis suburb.

Attorney Elberger insisted that his client was looking forward to “the conclusion of the investigation” after the 6:30 a.m. raid last month.

State police joined the FBI in scouring the home for anything incriminating.

Fogle gained national renown as “The Subway Guy” after the company learned of his amazing weight loss while a student at Indiana University.

His 60-inch waist shrunk as Fogel subsisted on nothing but turkey and vegetable subs.
