Harry Hill has signed a two-year deal to make TV Burp and You’ve Been Framed as well as develop new formats for ITV.

The agreement spanning 2010 and 2011 means Harry will host two new series of both ITV1’s popular Saturday evening shows.

The former doctor said: “If you’re a light entertainer there’s really only one place to be on a Saturday night, and that’s ITV.”

In January, Harry topped a poll as the celebrity people would like to see taking over Jonathan Ross’s Friday night chat show on BBC One when he leaves.

Peter Fincham, ITV’s director of television, channels and online, said: “Harry is one of the outstanding comedians and television entertainers of his generation.

“I’m delighted that ITV1 will continue to be the home of the multi-award winning TV Burp and I very much look forward to working with Harry and [TV Burp producers] Avalon on new projects for the channel.”
