Jonathan Ross is set to front a new movie show for ITV, years after finishing his commitment on a similar show for the BBC

Jonathan Ross is to front a new film show.

The TV host - who previously presented a movie show for the BBC before he departed the network in 2010 - will launch the programme in April and hopes it will be a "bit bigger" than what he used to do for the old show.

He told Radio Times magazine: "The BBC film show is fine, it's a lovely show but it's always been what it is - reviews, talking about movies. "We're doing stuff that is a bit bigger; we're opening it up a bit more."

"We'll do these stunts. In the pilot we had Ross Noble with a dialogue coach trying to do a scene from 'Jaws'."

Jonathan, who was replaced by Claudia Winkleman on the BBC show, also reveals he has been turning down radio jobs as he feels he is done with the format.

He said: "I've just turned down this huge radio gig as well. I'm very lucky that I'm in the position that I can turn down a big job.

"A lot of people can't. I'm enjoying writing my comic books - why walk into another big commitment like a daily radio show?"
