Harry Hill is to leave the hit ITV show TV Burp, according to reports in today’s papers.
According to The Sun , the former doctor turned funny man has had enough of the programme’s constant schedule, which leaves him little time for other projects. A source told the newspaper:
Harry kept telling people how much he hated doing it, but they thought he was joking. He wasn’t.
The red top also claims he was offered a £1 million pay-rise to continue on the show.
The show began in 2001 with a pilot show airing at Christmas.
Hill had previously worked for Channel 4 hosting The Harry Hill Show for four years.
TV Burp has won numerous awards for Hill, including consecutive BAFTAs in 2008 and 2009. A new series of Harry Hill’s TV Burp begins next Saturday, October 8, on ITV1.
