A new film-based show - produced by Ross through his production company Hot Sauce - will launch on ITV in April 2013.

"The BBC film show is fine, it's a lovely show but it's always been what it is – reviews, talking about movies," Ross told the Radio Times.

"We're doing stuff that is a bit bigger; we're opening it up a bit more. We'll do these stunts. In the pilot we had Ross Noble with a dialogue coach trying to do a scene from Jaws."

Comedian Noble - who will play a killer clown in new horror film Stitches - is one of the first confirmed guests set to appear.

Jonathan Ross already hosts his own chat show on ITV1 - The Jonathan Ross Show launched in September 2011 and is currently airing its third series.

The BBC's Film programme is now hosted by Claudia Winkleman with Danny Leigh.
