ITV bosses are still hoping to lure the comedian back after he rejected a £1m payrise to make another series, but The Mirror claims that production company Avalon has planned to carry on with the lucrative show regardless.
"They're desperate to keep the show on air as it earns them a fortune from ITV," a source said. "But the debacle surrounding Harry has left everyone bruised."
Lee Mack, Al Murray and Russell Kane have apparently been suggested as replacements for Hill.
The 47-year-old is said to have been approached by the BBC and Sky as well as ITV after parting ways with manager and Avalon boss Jon Thoday.
Hill claimed in October that there was still "no decision" made on TV Burp's future.
