Ross in talks about 'comeback'

A FEW weeks before the studio lights are due to go down on Jonathan Ross's Friday night chat show on BBC, ITV is rumoured to be in talks with the presenter about a comeback.

It is understood that Ross (49) will sign a non-exclusive deal with the commercial broadcaster for a version of 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross', which will air for the last time on BBC1 on July 16.

Executives at ITV are thought to be preparing the chat show for the autumn and may place it in the lucrative Saturday slot that follows 'The X Factor'. The move would follow the channel's high-profile signing of 'The One Show' presenter Adrian Chiles.

An ITV spokesman said: "We talk to talent on a regular basis about projects at ITV but there's nothing we can confirm at this time." (© Independent News Service)
