PRESENTER Baz Ashmawy has revealed how he opened up his home to pop star Bressie to make a video.

Hearing that the Voice coach was looking for a location to shoot the promo for new single, Show Me Love, the 37-year-old offered the spacious house he shares in Rathmines with partner Tanya Evans.

"They were looking for a kitchen and a bedroom with enough space to get the cameras in, so I let Bressie and the crew use my house," Baz Ashmawy told Suburbia magazine.

Not wanting a cameo in the promo, the former How Low Can You Go travel host absented himself for the entire shoot.

The part-Egyptian TV star will be away from home again this September, when he spends two weeks crossing the US on a Harley-Davidson to aid an Irish dog charity.

Boxing champion Bernard Dunne, actor George McMahon and singer Ryan Sheridan will also be on the 3,000km trip from Chicago to New Orleans to raise funds for Irish Dogs for the Disabled.

Baz said he had been inspired to take part after meeting a young boy with special needs whose life has been made easier by a stability dog.

However the waiting time for a stability dog is now three years.

The use of stability dogs is relatively new in Ireland. The dogs are trained to assist with everyday tasks such as opening doors, turning on and off lights and even taking clothes out of the washing machine.

"We'd love more kids to have these special dogs – and sooner. We wanted to help because we all agreed this is a very deserving charity," said Baz.
