BRAD v PAUL; EXCLUSIVE Chat show rivals.
CORRIE star Bradley Walsh is to go head-to-head against chat show host Paul O'Grady in a teatime ratings war.
ITV chiefs, still fuming after O'Grady ditched them in a multi-million-pound deal with Channel 4, will use Bradley - Corrie's Danny Baldwin - to host a new programme between 5pm and 6pm.
The move comes after Bradley threatened to quit the Street but was persuaded to stay with a mega-deal aimed at making him the face of ITV. He will still appear on Corrie but only for around three months a year.
Last night a Street source said: "The plan is to put Bradley on head-to-head with O'Grady in the tea time slot doing guests and chat. It will be a fantastic opportunity for him."
Head to head...' Bradley & Paul
