O'Callaghan is confident the programme, which returns this summer, won't follow in the footsteps of Brendan O'Connor's axed 'Saturday Night Show'.

"All I think is 'Thank God I'm a woman'," she said. "Because there are no female chat show hosts."

O'Callaghan was speaking at the launch of Dundrum Town Centre's Shop for Good charity fundraiser which runs from April 24-26.

Over the three days, shoppers can purchase coupons allowing them to avail of substantial discounts in selected stores. All proceeds will go to suicide prevention charity Console.

 The Prime Time host was also remaining coy regarding the rumours she is putting together a bid to run for the Presidency in 2018.

“I genuinely don’t know any of these ‘friends’ who keep speaking to the press,” she said at a charity photo call this week. “But they’re certainly not talking to me. I have no comment about the President thing.”

The RTÉ broadcaster then proceeded to talk at length about Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, strong female leaders and the importance of smashing glass ceilings.

“Now I have to go,” she cried. “But I’ll see you in the Áras. Joking!”
