Jonathan Ross is in talks with ITV bosses about the possibility of hosting several primetime shows
Jonathan Ross is in talks to make a huge TV comeback.
The chat show host - who quit his 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross' series last year - has been in discussions with ITV bosses about the possibility of scoring a primetime slot, which will see him front shows on both Friday and Saturday nights.
A friend of the star said: "He is talking to ITV about three or four potential shows. It's undecided if he will do a light entertainment show, chat show or a mixture of both.
"But one thing is clear from he talks, however - ITV see Wossy and Ant and Dec as the jewels in their Saturday night schedule. It's just got to be decided whether they will fire up their big guns in the same line-up, or at different times."
However, with presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly currently enjoying the primetime slots, insiders aren't sure whether there will be room for both the comedy duo and Jonathan on the channel.
The source added to the Daily Star: "Obviously Ant and Dec have ruled the airwaves at ITV for years but Jonathan is just as big a star too and there's hopefully room for them both."
Jonathan is already lined up to host magic talent show 'Penn and Teller: Fool Us', in which amateur magicians try to impress professionals with their tricks.
He will also be presenting at the British Comedy Awards on Channel 4 later this month.
