The Mirror is reporting that Harry Hill and his former agent Avalon have settled a long running legal dispute.

Harry has claimed that he was owed money related to his work on TV Burp, whilst Avalon, in a counter claim, said they were owed over £100,000 for commission related to You’ve Been Framed, as well as 15% from his Green Flag voiceover, Little Crackers and book deals.

The paper has said they have now reached an agreement, with a joint statement saying that they are both “pleased the claims between us are resolved”, and also adding:

All financial sums due to each of us have been paid and we have a clear agreement about financial payments due to each in the future.

As part of the settlement, all allegations made in the course of the dispute are specifically withdrawn.

This resolves all artistic and financial differences between us and all claims are settled.
