Jonathan Ross has joked he wants to take a ''gap year'' when his BBC contract ends next month
Jonathan Ross wants a "gap year".
The veteran presenter admits he would love to take a lengthy break from public life when his 13-year association with the BBC ends next month.
He tweeted: "I have decided that after my shows finish in three weeks...gap year!!!"
However the 49-year-old star is not planning on giving up work entirely.
He continued "When I say gap year I will still be twittering and writing comics. So maybe need new phrase? Any thoughts.(sic)"
However, despite his idea, Jonathan - who has children Betty Kitten, 18, Harvey Kirby, 16, and 13-year-old Honey Kinney with wife Jane Goldman - shows no sign of slowing down.
He is believed to be in negotiations with ITV over a deal to bring a revamped version of his talk show, 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross', over to the channel.
He has also been confirmed as returning to host this year's British Comedy Awards on Channel 4.
Jonathan recently admitted he is close to signing a new TV deal.
He said: "I've got something lined up but I'm not talking about it."
