U.K. TV presenter Jonathan Ross will host a new primetime chat show on ITV1 in 2011.

Ross is leaving the BBC this summer after nine years of hosting his Friday evening chat show on BBC One, in addition to the weekly Saturday show on AC network BBC Radio 2 which began in 1999.

The TV show has been a key platform for music in the U.K. Recent performers on the show include Eminem, Scissor Sisters and Kylie Minogue. The July 2 edition of the TV show had an audience of 3.2 million.

The final BBC TV show will run July 16 and will feature guests David Beckham, Jackie Chan and Roxy Music. The final Radio 2 show will air July 17. BBC presenter Graham Norton, who already has a TV chat show, will take over the radio show in the fall.

ITV has confirmed the new chat show will air in a peak time slot in late 2011 and early 2012. There have been unconfirmed reports it may air after “The X Factor” on Saturday nights.

"I am thrilled and excited that after a short break I will be rolling up my sleeves and creating a brand new show for ITV1," said Ross in a statement. "I have worked successfully with most of the key figures at the network in the past and cannot wait to get back on screen with a fast, funny, and unpredictable new talk show."

Peter Fincham, ITV director of television, added: "From Hollywood stars through to British politicians, Jonathan Ross has interviewed them all and has long established himself as the preeminent chat show host of his generation."

Ross' announcement earlier this year that he was leaving the BBC followed intense media scrutiny of his remuneration from the publicly funded broadcaster. There was also a media furor in 2008 following complaints about an on-air prank call on a Radio 2 show with comedian Russell Brand. Ross was suspended for 12 weeks until early 2009, while Brand quit his show.
