In an announcement which has stunned Xposé fans this afternoon, Jonathan Cheban has pulled out of his highly-publicised guest host slot on the entertainment show.

Kim Kardashian's BFF was set to host the TV3 show today and tomorrow, but according to emerging reports, that dream came to an end before it even started.

Explaining the change of plan to the press and public, Jonathan's manager said: "Due to unforeseen circumstances Jonathan has had to return to NY, we are hoping to reschedule a visit to Ireland very soon."

According to previous reports, the reality star was only dying to get his teeth into some presenting on this side of the pond.

“I’ve done lots of TV in the US and the UK but never in Ireland so I can’t wait," he gushed at the time.

Looks like he's going to have to wait a bit longer…


Kim Kardashian's best friend,  Jonathan Cheban will co-host TV3's Xposé this Thursday and Friday.

According to reports, he will join Karen Koster, Glenda Gilson and Cassie Stokes in hosting the style and beauty programme. 

Jonathan has appeared on various reality television shows including Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating

Speaking about his Xposé role he said: “I’ve done lots of TV in the US and the UK but never in Ireland so I can’t wait”

It was previously though that Doireann Garrihy and Daniella Moyles would replace former host, Ruth O'Neill, but TV3 now look set to fill the role with a series of high-profile guest presenters instead.  

The television network are expected to announce more guest hosts over the coming days. 



In a surprising move, Ruth O'Neill has quit Xpose, in order to pursue opportunities abroad.

The TV3 star just celebrated ten years of the TV show last week, but has decided to move onto greener pastures.

Speaking to Independent.ie, Ruth said that it took her months to make the decision, but feels like it's the right time for her to leave.

"Work has been brilliant, it's ticked all the boxes but at the end of the day I just really want to try something new. I've developed so many new skills working at Xpose.

"I've had such incredible opportunities. I've really been so lucky and I'm not leaving with any regrets. But I just feel that I need to try something new," she explained.

When speaking about her decision, Ruth revealed that settling back into the Irish life was difficult for her, as most of her friends live abroad.

"I've just found it so hard to settle at home. I think anyone who's lived abroad, whether it's Australia or the UK, will understand that it can be tough to adjust to life at home when you've been away for so long.

"All my friends live away and it's been difficult to meet new friends.

"We keep in touch on WhatsApp but it's not the same. It can be really lonely at times. I thought it would be grand but it wasn't as easy as I thought," she said.

"People keep saying 'you have the dream job' and working with Xpose is something I've always wanted to do but I know that it's time for me to leave. I don't want to get too comfortable. I need a new challenge.

"My idea of success keeps changing but my main priority is to be happy," she said.

As as for what she'll do next, Ruth said that she hasn't made any concrete plans yet, but is positive about her future.

"We'll see what comes my way. My boyfriend lives in London and I'd be keen to try something there but I'm not ruling anything out.

"I'm in the last year of my twenties and I'm just thinking 'why not!', if I leave it any longer I might be too scared to move," she added.


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.

We reported earlier that Aisling O'Loughlin will not be making her way back to Xposé, but now it has been confirmed that two other presenters will not return to the show.

TV3 has confirmed that Aisling, Peter O'Riordan and Lisa Cannon have all bid farewell.

The show is also reverting back to it's 30 minute slot.

The channel made a statement today: "TV3 today confirmed changes to its nightly entertainment show Xposé, now entering its tenth year on air.

"The programme will see some format changes and will revert to its original 30 minute duration in September. The show will air on TV3 from 6pm each weekday evening with a second chance look at 8.30pm every night on 3e.

"The new presenter line-up will now consist of Karen Koster, Glenda Gilson, Cassie Stokes and Ruth O'Neill."


Aisling O'Loughlin has revealed she will not be returning to our Xposé TV screens.

The mum-of-three, who just gave birth to her third child this year, has said she will not be making a comeback and needs to figure out what's coming up next.

"I probably won't be returning back to Xposé," she told Goss.ie.

"I have a bit of figuring out to do, but I'll take it all in my own good time. It will all come out soon.

"I can't say much just yet, but I will let official Xposé say it,"she added.



TV presenter and former model Glenda Gilson has absolutely no qualms about turning 35. 

In fact, she has never felt better as she revealed that she got less worried about her looks as she aged. 

"You're not doubting yourself [anymore]- that's age I suppose," said the Xposé presenter to the Mirror. 

"I think as you get older you don't care. When I was younger I would be thinking 'oh God, I've no make-up on' or 'my hair isn't done.' "

The stunning presenter reckons that times have changed and having a more natural look is now in fashion, rather then being done-up all the time. 

"I see girls that I started working with, models who have their businesses now, and they're the same.

"They've no make-up on and they've their hair up in a bun and they're natural beauties. You just don't think too much about it all now."

Glenda spent her birthday weekend in Kerry with husband Rob MacNaughton. 



Leap Day wasn't all about the proposal news it seems – there was some very exciting baby news too.

Xposé presenter Karen Koster welcomed her second son yesterday, February 29, meaning her new arrival will technically only get to celebrate his "birthday" every four years.

Karen and her husband of three years John McGuire seem to be making a habit of welcoming their children on significant dates. Their first son Finn was born on New Year's Eve, 2014, as John mentioned when making the happy birth announcement on Twitter just now.

"John James McGuire was born yest on leap day, that's NYE and the leap day done," he joked. "Going for Xmass and Paddies day next, then we'll stop kissin."

After waiting until late October – four months into her second pregnancy – to confirm the news, Karen admitted that it was tough keeping it under wraps.

"I’m absolutely over the moon," the 35-year-old told The Irish Mirror at the time.

"I feel like I’ve been keeping a secret. It is such a relief to finally tell people and get my belly out."

Although she said she felt "blessed" to be expecting again, Karen admitted she had some new worries this time around.

"I know now that I can survive the night feeds and all the labour and that gory stuff.

"But now my worries are more like, 'How am I going to go to the bathroom when I have a baby who wants his bottle and I’ve Finn wobbling around?'"

Well, she's about to find out! Congrats to Karen, John and big brother Finn.


Irish model and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jeremy McConnell caused a bit of a stir at the TV3 towers yesterday as he pulled out of his co-hosting gig on Xposé last minute. 

Jezza was all set to make his TV presenting debut, but it seems that after a weekend of wild partying following the CBB final, the model simply couldn't face the cameras yesterday. 

And Jeremy's reps had no problem confirming that the reason for the Dublin man's absence was his over-zealous partying. 

"Jeremy has been totally overwhelmed by the response since he came out of CBB, he didn’t get back to Ireland till Saturday after over a month away and I think celebrated a bit too hard.

"He’s gutted to have let Xposé down in the way that he did but was ill and in no fit state to present the show.”

And sources close to the star revealed that a combination of his party lifestyle and some bad food put the reality star out of action yesterday. 

"Unfortunately he partied too hard, not helped by a dodgy takeaway which resulted in him being too ill to do Xposé," said the source to the Mirror

Those darn dodgy takeaways. 

We wonder if the TV3 entertainment show will invite the star back after that stunt. 

The news comes days after Jeremy was heard arguing intensely with his CBB love interest, Stephanie Davis. 


He's just made it OFF our TV screens, but it seems that Jeremy McConnell isn't going anywhere fast.

The CBB contestant is set to make his presenting debut on Xposé this week, teaming up with the show's usual presenters.

Speaking out about his first stint at presenting Jeremy said, "I’m looking forward to meeting the Xposé team and having the craic. This is my first presenting job and it’s a great opportunity. I think Peter will be glad to have another male in studio for a change!”

He's following the ranks of reality stars presenting on the show, including Nicola Hughes and Jodi Albert. But we're looking forward to seeing his skills for the role. 


The next guest host set to front TV3's daily fashion and entertainment show is none other than model and reality star, Nicola Hughes. 

If you have been keeping up with the shenanigans in Made in Chelsea over the last two seasons, you will no doubt know Nicola as Alex Mytton's Irish girlfriend. 

And if the last few episodes are anything to go by, it seems there might be trouble in paradise for the attractive couple. 

However, Nicola's career in television continues to soar as the model has been picked up as a guest host for Xposé for three days starting tonight. 

Nicola made her TV debut on RTE's Series Exiles before heading over to make her mark on Chelsea. 

Already a longtime fan of the series, Nicola is chuffed to be joining the Xposé team. 

"I’ve seen working the red carpets over here in London so it’s really exciting to get the opportunity to work with them at home in Dublin."

And it seems that TV3 are also excited to have her. 

"Nicola is building her profile in the UK and is a big fan of Xposé. Her following on Instagram is testament to her growing popularity," says producer of the show, Daniel Readman.

We know Nicola is well able to cause a fight on reality TV, but we can't wait to see how she does as a presenter.
