Comedian Harry Hill Reportedly Quits "TV Burp"

From Digital Spy:
Harry Hill 'quits TV Burp, rejects £1 million payrise'

Harry Hill has reportedly quit his ITV series TV Burp.

The popular show returns for its eleventh run on October 8, with The Sun claiming that the comic turned down a £1 million payrise to sign on for more.

The 46-year-old previously admitted that working on the Bafta Award-winning show, which sees Hill poke fun at the week's TV, was a "drag", saying that the longer runs had left him feeling "completely mental".

Hill is said to be planning to focus on working on Simon Cowell's rumoured The X Factor musical, which he was linked to last week.

"Harry kept telling people how much he hated doing it but they thought he was joking. He wasn't," a source told the paper.

An ITV1 spokesperson said that another series would air in 2012, while production company Avalon responded: "Harry has a lot of commitments in the next year, but a final decision has not yet been reached."

Harry Hill's TV Burp returns to ITV1 on Saturday, October 8 at 7pm.

Digital Spy has put together a selection of Harry Hill's TV Burp videos from YouTube showcasing some of their personal favourite moments from the TV Burp archives, including The birth of Master Wagbo, Best Harry Hill's TV Burp fight of all time ("Naughtiest Vegetarians"), a hilarious three-minute send-up of short-lived Chris Tarrant quiz show disaster Colour of Money, Louie Spence's first infamous cameo on Harry Hill's TV Burp, a clip of knitted TV talent contest The K Factor, The X Factors Eoghan Quigg's "telephone face", and Robert Kilroy-Silk getting TV Burp-ed.
