Billy Bush is headed back to prime time!

Just three years after getting fired from TODAY show over lewd comments caught on audio tape during a conversation with Donald Trump, Bush has inked a multi-million deal to return to TV and host Fox’s Extra Extra, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

“Billy has signed a contract for $3.5 miliion a year, which is exactly the amount that he was making at TODAY before he was canned," a network insider told Radar. “Extra Extra sought him out and he is beyond happy because he will have a life again.”

“He is already in there every single day and gets along flawlessly with Mario, who pretty much runs the ship over there,” the source told Radar, referring to longtime Extra host Mario Lopez.

The insider said Billy will "undoubtedly bring in ratings because it is owned by Fox and he will represent a demograophic that isn’t traditional Hollywood."

"Everyone is just thrilled for him and thrilled to have him," the source added.

As Radar previously reported, the 47-year-old’s wife Sydney Davis filed for divorce in July 2018, due to the strain on their marriage.

The former couple of 20 years have not yet finalized their divorce. They share three daughters together — Lillie, 14, Mary, 18, and Josie Bush, 20.
