Lucy Kennedy has landed a primetime dating show with TV3 - an Irish version of 'Blind Date'.
The former RTE presenter had spoken earlier this year of pitching a dating show to RTE which she said "fell through", forcing her to come up with a different format.
Of her primetime Blind Date show for TV3, she said, "I will host Blind Date but there will be an Irish twist."
The presenter jumped ship from RTE to TV3 over a year ago where she has been co-hosting Late Lunch Live on weekdays with Martin King.
Lucy was revealed as the new Blind Date host at the launch of TV3's Autumn/Winter schedule at the Mansion House on Wednesday.
Cilla Black hosted the UK version of the show from 1985 to 2003 and it is expected that trademarks of Blind Date including the sliding door and surprise holiday date prizes will feature in the Irish version.
