Vogue Williams will be back on Irish TV screens later this year after her three-part documentary series was re-commissioned.

The model turned presenter will return to RTE2 in the autumn with a new stand alone 'pop doc' series Wild Girls, the Herald can confirm.

The 29-year-old first began working on documentaries for RTE as part of the Reality Bites series, before getting her own three-part series last year. It was widely praised by critics.

Wild Girls saw the Howth native traveling to the States to interview female offenders in one episode, becoming a sparring partner for a female MMA fighter in another, as well as attending a swingers party and a sex club for the final instalment of the series.

Darragh McManus: Vogue Williams, it turns out, is pretty darn good at making pretty darn good television 

In the next series, Vogue will tackle new subjects, with one episode on addiction already in the pipeline.

The series is the brainchild of Waka Productions and Dublin-based producer and director Warren Meyler.

"We are doing another series with Vogue," Warren told the Herald.

"It will be a stand-alone series and will have different themes - one will be on addiction, but we are still working on the others.

"Vogue's series has done really well and she's a really good 'pop doc' presenter, so RTE are really happy with her."

It's good news for London-based Vogue after she recently admitted that she has lost her direction in life after her split from ex-Westlife star Brian McFadden last summer following three years of marriage.

The former Fade Street star was also the victim of a mugging while out walking in London last week and had her phone stolen during the incident.
