Kim Kardashian's best mate Jonathan Cheban was due to host TV3's Xpose on Thursday and Friday but he left the show in the lurch at the last minute.

The station had excitedly announced on Wednesday that the former CBB housemate and professional plus one would be a high profile guest presenter joining Karen Koster, Glenda Gilson and Cassie Stokes in the Ballymount studio.

However, they issued a statement at 3pm on Thursday, just five hours before the show, stating that he had to cancel for 'unforeseen circumstances'.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances Jonathan has had to return to NY, we are hoping to reschedule a visit to Ireland very soon," said his manager.

It's unclear what those circumstances were as Jonathan (43) was on Snapchat charting his dinner in London on Wednesday evening before revealing he was leaving London and his room at the Westminister Park Hotel - to go to the Hamptons.

Wednesday's press release included a quote from Jonathan, “I’ve done lots of TV is the US and the UK but never in Ireland so I can’t wait."

It seems he can wait after all.

In the meantime TV3 will roll out other high-profile guest presenters to fill the void left by Ruth O'Neill's departure.
