Former Xposé presenter Peter O’Riordan has announced his engagement to Stephanie Corbitt.
The Cork native took to Twitter this afternoon to share the good news with fans.
Alongside a picture of Stephanie’s new rock, Peter wrote: “When life gives you coal, you make diamonds. Delighted to finally make a (more) honest woman outta @tephyluv PROPERLY this time. USA bound.”
Peter’s model fiancée used Instagram to mark the occasion with a picture of the couple’s son kissing her freshly ringed hand among the autumn leaves at St Stephen’s Green.
The Hawaii native wrote: “In between the Fall leaves where our journey in Dublin all began he promised me forever…and to make this moment even sweeter livi kissed my hand when I showed him his daddy FINALLY made an honest woman out of me.”
Last week, the TV host – who moved back Ireland to be part of the TV3 entertainment show in 2014 – announced plans to return to Hollywood with his family after being dramatically dropped from Xposé with Lisa Cannon and Aisling O’Loughlin.
Congrats to the happy couple!
It’s been less than a week since the news broke that Aisling O’Loughlin, Lisa Cannon and Peter O’Riordan will not be returning to TV3’s Xposé.
And while Lisa has already revealed that she will be adopting a new role within the same station, it has now been suggested that Aisling could be headed down a different route altogether.
According to The Irish Sun, the mother of three is now seeking “independent advice” in relation to being cut from the show while away on maternity leave.
A source told the paper that Aisling and Lisa “were both more than ready for a change” but that the way the situation was handled was “all wrong”.
It has been reported that Cassie Stokes and Ruth O’Neill – who both joined the show this year – are now “replacing” Lisa and Aisling as presenters.
A Sun source said: “Cassie and Ruth were supposed to be covering maternity leave for Karen and Aisling.”
“But it now looks like they are replacing Lisa and Aisling.”
In comparison with his now cut female co-stars – who have both been with the hit entertainment series for almost a decade – Peter O’Riordan is relatively new to the show.
The Cork native joined the team from TMZ two years ago.
Topless men, supermodels and toys, no it's not a fetish show, we're back with another edition of Wired where Niamh Geaney is joined in studio by TV crazed Ciara O’Doherty to lay down the law and air their thoughts on what’s been happening in the TV world. This week’s wired is packed full to the brim with X Factor gossip, news of a new Toy Show (is it too early to bring it up?), what absolute superstars will be appearing on Gogglebox as well as a program due to air this week on nudity in Ireland, scandalous!
Join us back here tomorrow for The Line-Up, your weekly event guide.
It seems that Xposé presenter Peter O’Riordan has been harbouring a secret past.
Peter, who is the latest addition to the entertainment show’s presenting panel, once flexed his muscles as an actor in a spoof YouTube video series.
He kept that one quiet!
The presenter played the role of James in four episodes of Steam Room Stories; the series that gives a rather bizarre insight into what guys apparently talk about when they’re hanging out in the steam room.
In this clip that we unearthed, Peter strips off and puts his best American accent on.
We have so many thoughts and feelings and questions, we just don't know where to begin.
Check it out.
