Bradley Walsh has landed his own chat show.

The 'Doctor Who' actor is set to film a pilot of the new programme, 'It's Showtime', on ITV next month, and the show is said to be "pretty similar" to 'The Jonathan Ross Show' with celebrity guests, live music and studio games.

A source said: "Bradley has well and truly cemented himself as a staple star on ITV. Producers thought that it was about time he got his own chat show.

"It will be pretty similar to 'The Jonathan Ross Show' with some games and live performances thrown in."

It's thought 'The Chase' presenter's new programme could even hit the heights of 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' - which is currently on a break after Ant McPartlin took time out from showbiz commitments following his drink-driving conviction - if the pilot is successful.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: "It's early days but if it goes down well it could be in the running to replace 'Saturday Night Takeaway' as ITV's top entertainment show."

If the pilot proves to be a winner then there are said to be plans to air a full run of Bradley's chat show next year.

But this could mean he has even more work colleagues who are after 'Doctor Who' secrets, as the 58-year-old star - who plays Graham O'Brien in the BBC One sci-fi drama series - recently admitted his 'The Chase' co-stars have been trying to get him to reveal show spoilers.

He recently said: "The Chasers have been [asking for information] because they're mad Whovians. They really are. Especially Anne Hegerty and The Beast.

"I had to hold my nerve. But they're thrilled for me."
