Brian and Pippa to head for UK in search of work

TV PRESENTER Brian Ormond is set to look for work in the UK after missing out on RTE's The Voice.

After years of loyalty to the national broadcaster, Ormond will drop the bombshell during a new documentary featuring him and his model wife Pippa.

Having lost out to Eoghan McDermott in the battle for the station's new flagship show, Brian is set to announce that he is packing his bags and heading to London, the Diary can reveal.

Viewers will see Brian confessing his devastation about The Voice and planning the move in Brian And Pippa Get Married, which is set to air tomorrow night on RTE.


The documentary, filmed over several weeks last summer, will see the pair walking up the aisle in Wicklow, as well as partying with Ireland's top celebrities at the Ritz Carlton.

As well as promising some emotional scenes, the show will also see RTE host Brian (32) revealing the harsh realities of showbiz life.

He tells the cameras that he will be leaving Ireland in search for work and Pippa admits she is prepared to join him wherever he goes.

An insider close to the couple said: "The cameras follow Pippa and Brian from the hen party to the wedding reception but there is more to it than that. During filming, Brian was being tested for RTE's new talent show The Voice.

"He tells the cameras that he is banking on the job and will be forced to leave the country for good if he doesn't land the gig. And Pippa stands by Brian.

"She says if he's going she's coming with him and they make a really big decision," the source said.

Although Brian and Pippa are still living in Naas, the insider revealed that Sing presenter Brian has already been doing interviews for possible positions in both the US and the UK and is in talks to star in a new show, meaning top model Pippa will have to leave her Irish career behind.

The insider added: "Brian has already been in talks with people in the States, they love the Irish over there and he has a great showreel of work. He is one of the hardest working guys in RTE and other companies can see that.

"He has always said that he will go where the work is and it's definitely not in Ireland right now."

The documentary will air tomorrow night on RTE 2 at 10pm.
