The Longford native also appeared as a guest host on This Morning.

Speaking about her new role, she said: “I’m so excited to be the presenter of the first ever Glow Up Ireland. Having watched the last few series of the show in the UK this is such an amazing opportunity and the fact that this is my first presenting job and it's in Ireland is so overwhelming.


Maura Higgins arriving for the ITV Palooza held at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London.

“It’s such a pinch me moment to be doing this back in my home country. I actually can’t believe it. Obviously, we’re expecting a very high standard of Irish talent to come forward.

“Applications are now open so get in touch to be in with a chance of landing one of the top ten coveted spots on the show.”
