Harry Hill is filming a pilot for a "secret" new primetime show in the hope ITV bosses will commission a full series
Harry Hill is filming the pilot for a "secret" new primetime show.
The 'Stars in Their Eyes' host has revealed he is set to shoot the first episode of a new programme next month in the hope that ITV bosses will commission a full series.
He said: "It's a secret because if I tell anyone, then someone will nick the idea.
"We're making a pilot in March and then ITV will decide whether they like it."
The 50-year-old comedian - who presented comedy series 'Harry Hill's TV Burp' from 2001 to 2012 which looked back over the week's best TV moments - has been careful not to create the kind of show he used to "take the p**s out of".
He explained: "I've been saying that I can't do a straightforward presenting job, just reading links and stuff.
"The last thing I want to do is make the kind of show that I used to take the p**s out of."
Following his stint of over a decade on the ITV series, Harry is enjoying not knowing what the future holds for him.
When asked if he would ever consider bringing back 'TV Burp', he told The Sun newspaper: "No! I've done that.
"What I like at the moment is that before I had TV Burp stretching out months in advance on two-year contracts, now I don't know what is going to happen.
"When you are starting out that's the kind of thing that used to scare you.
"Now I am quite enjoying it."
