Doireann Garrihy to host the new The Podge and Rodge Show


We're feeling extremely nostalgic over the news that Ballydung Manor will be returning to our TV screens. 

RTE is bringing back the Podge & Rodge Show, but a modern update is included with the introduction of new host Doireann Garrihy. 

The radio presenter and social media personality will be showcasing her comedic wares alongside the infamous puppet twins.

'It's coming back and I am hosting alongside Podge and Rodge, I can't believe it, I'm still pinching myself,' she told RTÉ Entertainment.

'I'm so delighted to be involved.'

'From the minute I walked in and met them first I was like, 'If I don’t get this gig, I'll be gutted' and I got it and I'm so thrilled to be here and to be involved in it,' she said.

The show has been cancelled since 2010, but we're delighted that it's making a comeback. 

We're sure there will be cringey interviews and dirty jokes abound.
