Ryan Seacrest has signed a new deal to remain as the host of American Idol.
The presenter has been involved with the US talent show since it first hit screens in 2002, and has now announced that he has agreed a two-year extension of his contract.
"For the last 11 seasons, I've had the privilege to be a part of one of television's most iconic shows," he said in a statement. "It's been a wild ride, and I'm excited for my journey with American Idol to continue.
"The legions of fans, amazingly talented contestants, judges, and producers, along with the hard working Idol crew, impress me every time we go on air and make hosting the show a dream job."
It has been reported that Seacrest will earn $30-million over the next two seasons, but this is yet to be confirmed.
It had been speculated that former American Idol judge Simon Cowell was trying to lure Seacrest across to his rival American show, The X Factor.
However, creator Simon Fuller is thrilled that Seacrest has committed to American Idol for another two years.
"He has been here from the very first day," he said. "I can't imagine the show without him."
