She's already conquered the world of Irish TV, but Kathryn Thomas still has one big ambition left on her dream list - to front her own talk show.

The Carlow native has been a fixture on the small screen since the tender age of 19 and with almost two decades of experience behind her, Kathryn hopes to pursue getting her own show in the future.

Although she admitted TV was currently crowded with chat shows, she doesn't see why she can't join the club.

"As long as you are challenged, that is the big thing for me," she told the Diary.

"As long as something doesn't become boring or run of the mill. It's about bringing something new to it.

"The chat show is there, we are inundated with chat shows at the minute, but that would definitely be something I would look at doing down the line."

The 37-year-old also revealed she would love to release her own series of documentaries.

"I would like to, possibly down the line. I've done a few radio documentaries which I loved," she said.

"I have an interest in politics and the economies overseas because I've travelled as much as I have.

"I have my finger in many pies in terms of what's going on in the world."

Kathryn currently has her hands full running her Pure Results Bootcamp, which is running week-long courses in Co Westmeath at the moment.

"We've had really positive feedback. We give everyone an evaluation form. We've gotten lots of referrals, lots of word of mouth, things are going great," she said.

"It's mostly weight loss that people come for, so on average they're losing between five and 10 pounds a week.

"It really varies but on average we're on about seven pounds a week.

"The big thing is trying to maintain that after they leave camp.

"Having gone back to all our clients they are maintaining the weight loss, which is the big thing for us. They do a weigh-in the week after the camp."

Although she has conquered the world of showbiz on Irish shows, Kathryn admitted she does not have much interest in heading to the UK to try her hand at the British market.

"I don't think so at this point. I would never say never but I am happy where I am, I have good projects coming up and I have a really good relationship with the Irish viewers so for me, I am happy."

The blonde does have a brand new TV project coming up, however she remained tight-lipped on what sort of show it will be.

"I think people will love it. It's been a long time coming and it's going to be fun," she added.
