Kian Egan has landed a new gig as a presenter on Heat Radio in the UK.

Following in the footsteps of fellow former Westlifer Nicky Byrne, who has his own daily 2FM breakfast show, Egan will front his own show.

It kicks off on Saturday March 21 and the 34-year-old singer be playing music from the 90s and 00s every week from 12-2pm.

Kian, who currently sits on the coaching panel on The Voice of Ireland, said, "It's great to be on board at Heat Radio!

"My show is all about bringing the biggest tunes, plus I'm really looking forward to sharing some never-before-heard stories with you all in between the tracks."

Kian and wife Jodi Albert are expecting the arrival of their second baby this summer.  They are already parents to Koh (4).
