Paul O'Grady has said that he is not feuding with ITV bosses, amid reports that his chatshow Paul O'Grady Live has been cancelled.

It was yesterday claimed that the programme had been shelved due to disappointing ratings. However, the host has said that he is now planning to focus on new projects.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 56-year-old commented that "everyone's doing" chatshows.

On his relationship with ITV, which saw him first leave the broadcaster in acrimonious circumstances in 2006, he said: "I'm doing stuff for them next year, there's no fight. It's hunky dory.

"It's just I'm writing a book at the moment, I'm doing a play. I've got all manner on."

Meanwhile, O'Grady has been tipped as a possible replacement for comedian Michael McIntyre on Britain's Got Talent. Digital Spy readers have also backed the presenter to land the judging role.

"Paul would be a great addition - he's a national treasure," an insider told the paper. "He would no doubt prove to be hugely popular."
