TOP Irish model Nicola Hughes could well find herself an Exile next year.
An RTE/Canadian co-production, the series will follow six highly-motivated Irish people relocating to Vancouver, Canada for six months.
"Nicola is perfect for our series, but RTE and our Canadian co-producers will have the final say on who goes over," John told the Herald, as casting nears completion.
Despite making his name with reality shows like Fade Street and Dublin Wives, the producer stressed his latest project would be very different.
"This certainly isn't Tallafornia or the usual car crash TV," he said.
"What we are trying, is to cast a series with highly motivated Irish people with real goals and real dreams to realise."
