Harry Hill to quit ‘TV Burp’

Newspaper claims comedian 'hates doing show'

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.
