Harry Hill won't rule out another series of 'Harry Hill's TV Burp' but says he is taking at least a year off from it after the next series in 2012
Harry Hill won't rule out another series of 'Harry Hill's TV Burp'.
It was recently claimed the comedian had quit the ITV1 show - a comic review of the previous week's TV highlights - with his last series ending next year.
However, he now says he could return but needs a year's break from it because it takes up too much of his time.
When asked if he would quit in 2012, Harry told Big Issue magazine: "I think it's likely. I've been doing it for 10 years and I've done more than 100 shows. I'll certainly be taking a year off doing it and I'll see how it goes. But it's not like I'm saying I'll never do it again.
"It takes up six months of my year and that doesn't give me enough time to pursue anything else."
Harry also denied that ITV had offered him a £1 million pay rise to stay doing the much-loved show.
He said: "No, no, no! We haven't actually had a discussion about it. I haven't been offered a million quid."
The 46-year-old star says he is looking forward to working on new projects, which could include a movie.
He said: "I've got some film scripts. Maybe I'll write a Harry Hill film. I have a long list of ideas that have built up over the last five years."
