JLC: 'I'll retire in a few years'

Justin Lee Collins has revealed that he plans to quit the TV industry at an early age.

The TV host, who is best known for fronting Channel 4's The Sunday Night Project, hinted that his new two-year deal with Five could be his last.

Speaking to the Daily Record, the 35-year-old explained: "I am not so in love with this job that I just want to carry on doing it forever. The money is nice and I enjoy what I do. But family is more important - and so too is my health.

"I suffer from psoriasis, a skin condition, and that gets better when I'm not working. It's the reason I've still got such long hair and a thick beard. Some people think it's a fashion statement, and I suppose it has become that."

He continued: "I am serious about retiring in a few years. If at the end of two years with Five I am still enjoying myself, then I may think again and carry on. But I definitely plan to get out earlier than some people."

Collins recently announced that he is to release an album of original lounge music.
