Liverpool-born John will interview the "hottest names in TV, sport, music and more in front of a live studio audience", according to ITV.

The network went on to say that he will not ditch his comedy routes and will also have a "team of stand-ups" jetted in from across the globe to appear on the show.

Speaking to the Mirror John said: "We've been discussing making a Saturday night show for ITV for a while and I am so glad that we are finally going to be doing it.

"We want it to be up to date and topical, whilst also fitting the energy and fun that Saturday nights on ITV is known for."

Speaking about John's talk show, ITV's Head of Entertainment, Katie Rawcliffe said: "The John Bishop Show is the perfect Saturday night fix; celebrity tales, hilarious stand-up comedy and showcasing new global talent.

"John's charismatic on-air style will delight viewers and guests alike."

John is set to appear in BBC's sci-fi drama, Doctor Who, with BBC bosses sparking a frenzy across Merseyside with many believing that a UFO had landed in Liverpool.

Bosses projected a large spacecraft in the night sky over the city in a stunt to promote the new series of Doctor Who.

They chose Merseyside as that is where John, the Time Lord's new companion – hails from and where the opening episode will be set.

However, locals failed to grasp that it was a stunt last week and thought the Sontaran spaceship that was seen over George's Pier Head – was a real UFO.

John who will be playing Tardis traveller Dan Lewis in the show – posted a shot of the spaceship too and tweeted: "Mysterious aircraft seen over the Liverpool docks!"

The latest season that sees Jodie Whittaker step out as the Doctor for the final time will be broadcast in several weeks.

Speaking about Whittaker recently, co-star John said: "I know everyone knows it, but as everyone says, Jodie is phenomenal.

"The way she carries this show, the amount of responsibility that she wears so lightly on her shoulders – is staggering. The run's coming to an end soon and we were all talking earlier about how weird it will be not seeing each other every week."
