Dancing On Ice star Zoe Salmon has revealed that she is to present a new ITV show this summer.
The Bangor beauty, who made her television debut as a Blue Peter host, said she was delighted to land the new presenting job.
“I can’t give away too many details at the moment, but I’ll be co-presenting with a guy and the show will go out on ITV over the summer,” she said.
“I’ve done Dancing On Ice and GMTV, but this is the first time I’ll have my own ITV show and I’m so excited about it.”
Zoe, who also has a new man on the go, was speaking as she helped launch the first ever National Petrait gallery. The online gallery is a unique photo showcase for the nation to demonstrate their love of pets and Zoe is hoping to encourage as many people as possible to upload their pet photos to the site.
She said: “Everything is going really well at the moment.
“I completed the Dancing On Ice tour less than a fortnight ago and was worried that I’d have a huge void in my life, but I’ve been so busy.
“I’ve done some stuff for Virgin but the main thing will be the new programme for ITV.
“And yes, I’ve got a new man on the go. He works in the industry as well so I don’t walk to talk about him too much. It’s early days yet but we’re getting on great.”
Zoe has been linked with Capital FM DJ Greg Burns since she split with Belfast actor Gerard McCarthy.
The couple dated for over a year but went their separate ways earlier this year, with both citing work commitments as the reason for the break-up.
Speaking about the new pet website, http://www.petraitgallery.co.uk , Zoe, herself a pet lover, said: “The National Petrait Gallery is hoping to break the word record for the largest photo exhibition.
“It’s great that there is now a dedicated gallery for the nation’s pet lovers to share photos of their pets as well as be part of a Guinness World Record attempt.
“It’s amazing just how many different types of pets there are.
“Looking through the site I have already seen the obvious cute cats and dogs but there is also a donkey, a skunk and even an ant eater — imagine taking that for a walk.
“It’s so easy to upload images, and everyone loves a cute pet photo.”
