Graham Norton has agreed a new deal with the BBC that will see him take a £500,000 pay cut.

Under the new £2,000,000 (€2,180,000) deal, Norton is likely to host another musical talent search, the Eurovision and the Baftas, along with another run of his BBC 1 chatshow, according to The Sun.

His current deal is due to run out at the end of this year.

The Cork-born star, who is due to appear on this evening's 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross' show, was previously a major chatshow draw for Channel 4 and had been linked with a move to other broadcasters but is said to be happy at the BBC.

However, his new contract may allow him to work on select projects with other broadcasters.
