Jonathan Ross returning to BBC

Jonathan Ross is to return to the BBC, less than three months after his high-profile departure, to host a movie awards show.

The star, whose contract with the corporation ended in July, spelling the end for his BBC1 chat show and Radio 2 series, will host the BBC4 World Cinema Awards in October.

He had talked of taking a year's sabbatical before hosting a chat show for ITV1 next year.

Ross has previously hosted the event, which celebrates international film-making and is now in its seventh year.

The shortlist for the awards includes the animated memoir about the 1982 Lebanon War, Waltz With Bashir.
