Jonathan Ross has landed his first job since quitting the BBC in July.

The legendary TV host will front a three-hour Channel 4 special, which gives a countdown of Britain's all-time favourite toys.

Viewers will then be encouraged to vote for their favourite plaything in an online poll.

He said: "I've finally come to terms that I'm never really going to grow up, so I have decided to openly embrace my love of toys.

"We all have favourites from our childhood. Now thanks to Channel 4 we have the chance to find which really are the nation's favourite toys."

The 49-year-old star - who was temporarily suspended by the BBC in 2008 after leaving lewd messages on the answerphone of 'Fawlty Towers' star Andrew Sachs - is also being lined up to interview troubled singer George Michael in a TV special masterminded by Simon Cowell.

An insider recently explained: "Basically, George will tell all, sing a few classics and remind people why he was a pop god, and Ross reclaims his crown as the man they all want to talk to. It will be a great one-off special."
