Graham Norton has said he will quit his chat show The Graham Norton Show on BBC One before he's reduced to interviewing 'the cast of TOWIE'.
The 52 year-old star, who has been hosting the show since 2010, also said he would retire by 60.
Speaking at a Times+ event in Lond, he said, "You want to get out when people are still watching your show. You don't want it to be when people say, 'That is still on, that is still a thing?'
"This is the 18th year of me doing a chat show. We've been working up to this moment of being on BBC One on that prime Friday night slot, so we've always been inching forward in those 18 years.
"The thing no one wants is the inching backwards, where you're kind of going, 'Yes the cast of TOWIE can come on…' That's about retiring when you're on top."
He explained his reasons for wanting to get out at 60 - and it's all down to quality of life.
"I'm not jumping tomorrow, but it is in my head. You want to get out when you can still enjoy your life.
"Neighbours of mine worked and worked and they went on a trip of a lifetime around the world and they had to be airlifted three times because they were too old to do it.
"They got stuck on every hike they did. So I don't want to be them. You want to get out of work when you have still got time to enjoy your life.
"I do love my job. I might really miss it and then I will feel like an absolute fool. You can't come back. You could only come back to do I'm a Celebrity or Celebrity Big Brother or really awful things."
Graham is back on the box tomorrow night with Lewis Hamilton, Rita Ora, Ewan McGregor and Jack Whitehall on his infamous red sofa (BBC One 10.35pm).
As The Saturday Night Show gears up for its final show of its hugely successful five season run we take a look back at some of the most memorable moments, from the sheer daftness of Frostbit boy to the 'gates' (both Pin and Panti) to that gut-wrenchingly powerful interview with the late Donal Walsh.
The recent interview with Dr Rhona Mahony on The Saturday Night Show was a perfect example of what has become the hallmark of the show - host Brendan O'Connor's ability to just let people speak. Dr Mahony, Master of Holles Street, was a glamorous, fascinating guest. She was also passionate, articulate and intelligent. And from her host she got enough encouragement to keep her going, but not so much intervention as to throw her off or interrupt the flow.
