They are probably one of the most sickeningly in love couples in showbiz history.

So it is hardly surprising that for his latest TV venture, Westlife star Kian Egan (33) was given a helping hand by his wife Jodi Albert.

And it goes with out saying their first joint presenting gig was all about love.

The besotted pair are the latest celebrity couple to do the Mr and Mrs presenting gig when they filmed for UK television yesterday.


Voice of Ireland mentor Kian and his glamorous wife were in the studios of broadcaster ITV where they filmed for a new Valentine's Day segment on breakfast show Daybreak.

It seems Kian's repeated declaration of love and their passionate embrace during his three week stint in the jungle on I'm a Celebrity is still making waves with TV bosses.

The happy couple were snapped up for their first joint TV job, which is due to air on ITV screens on Monday.

Kian and Jodi (30) are fronting a segment called Valentine's in Vegas, which is giving couples a chance to get hitched in Las Vegas.

The loved-up couple will announce that ITV are looking for a viewer who wants to propose live on Daybreak before jumping on a plane to get married in Vegas, while live on the ITV breakfast show. "Given how happy they are, we thought he and Jodi would be perfect for the slot," an ITV spokesperson said.

Dad of one Kian said he was "delighted" to get a chance to host alongside Jodi.

The couple, who have a two-year-old son Koa together, said that their time apart while Kian filmed I'm a Celebrity Down-under, made them stronger as a family.

Following his return from Australia, king of the jungle Kian also revealed that he and Jodi are ready for another baby.

"I'd love to have a mini Jodi. I'm so lucky to have her and Koa and if we can give him a brother or sister, why wait?"

Former Hollyoaks actress Jodi was in total agreement.


"I'm all for it. I'd like a little girl next," she said.

The only thing that might slow down the baby-making plans is the number of work opportunities piling up. The third series of RTE's Voice of Ireland has returned and the Sligo native will spend more time at home when the live finals of show air in the coming months.

Jodi has recently that her and her former band Girl Thing will feature on the second series of ITV's Big Reunion.
