According to The Sun, the long-time host of the ceremony will be paid £50,000 to again front the awards.
Ross was replaced by Angus Deayton on last year's show in the wake of the scandal surrounding his and Russell Brand's prank telephone calls to actor Andrew Sachs.
An insider said: "Angus was okay - but it wasn't the same as with Jonathan. It's great he's back on a show we know he loves doing."
At last year's ceremony, Brand dedicated his Best Live Stand-Up gong to Ross, whom he called the "king-maker" of the comedy awards.
