Jenny McCarthy is gearing up for a wild New Year's Eve.

The former Playboy model will co-host Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest on America's ABC network on Monday night.

The programme is live and Jenny has warned producers she's not sure what might fly out of her mouth.

"I have more fun doing live TV than anything, I think because it's hard to censor. And I like that! So it's a little more off the cuff, and you never know what's going to happen," she told

The show will run for five hours from Times Square.

And Jenny's expecting plenty of wild antics from the crowd before the ball drops.

"I've got the drunk guy with no shirt on next to a 10-year-old from Nebraska," she said, resolving, "It's a great test of skills and fun for me."

Jenny, 40, is also taking votes for who she should kiss at midnight.

She's asking fans to tweet her @JennyMcCarthy to suggest if she should smooch a fireman, a military man or a random cute guy she sees in the crowd.

This will be the first time Dick Clark has not hosted the programme.

The beloved television personality died in April. He was 82.
