Insiders are claiming that TV Burp’s Harry Hill is being ‘tempted’ away from ITV to Sky and could be ‘weeks away’ from making a £3 million deal.
Sky were said to be ‘confident’ that they could get the comedian, whose current contract with ITV finishes in a couple of months.
The company are offering Harry double the money ITV give him for each TV Burp episode – and the funny man could get paid £80,000 per show.
Insiders claim that adding up his potential earnings if he switched to Sky, he could pocket £3 million a year for TV Burp and other shows for them.
A source told The Sun: “Sky is very confident of getting Harry. He’s very tempted by their offer.
“They want him to do TV Burp and have other ideas for him. A deal could be just weeks away, now.
“ITV is trying really hard to keep him but is under serious pressure to reduce costs.”
