A CARLOW muscle man made another TV appearance on Monday night thanks to his bulky physique.
Giana Gauca, owner of Olympia Gym on College Street, was on the new series of 'The Republic of Telly' last night helping presenter Dermott Whelan to train during his lunch break as part of a comedy sketch on the show.
Giana is no stranger to the television screen as he featured on the 'Podge and Rodge' show twice in 2008, he was a marked warrior in a Rennies heartburn ad and in 2011 during a Barnardos fundraiser Ryan Tubridy's head was superimposed on to his body.
Last year Giani completed a six-month course with the Irish Film Academy to secure some roles as a movie extra.
'I hope to get an agent,' he said. 'I wouldn't be so lucky to be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger but something on a smaller scale would be nice.'
