Ross hints at surprises for TV show

Jonathan Ross has revealed his chat show will be revamped for the next series.

The previous series of The Jonathan Ross Show had disappointing ratings, with viewing figures dropping below three million. The finale on March 8, featuring Jennifer Hudson, Richard Branson, Davina McCall, Sue Perkins and Elbow, was watched by 2.7 million.

The TV host now said the "shake-up" will give the show a boost for its seventh series.

"We'll be shaking up the format of the show in October - that will be the first big shake-up in a while," he told The Sun. "We do it every six years to keep the show fresh."

Jonathan continued: "So expect a few new surprises - and we're still striving to get top guests. It will be a shorter run this time, so I'll get a little time to rest."

"I'm like a vampire. I keep coming back," he added.

The Jonathan Ross Show, which debuted on ITV in September 2011, launched with over 4.25 million viewers, with the top viewed episodes featuring special guests Adele, One Direction and Lady Gaga.
