Claudine's TV career is about to kick off

BRITAIN'S top WAG Victoria Beckham could soon have some competition on her hands from our own Claudine Keane.

Just days after the gorgeous wife of Robbie Keane revealed her hopes of a move to the States so her hubby could play for David Beckham's team, LA Galaxy, she has been making progress with her TV career -- which is likely to raise her profile across the water.

The Diary can reveal the mum-of-one (26) is due to take part in a UK show in the coming months, about the battle to beat the post-pregnancy bulge. The Malahide beauty, who immediately bounced back to her svelte pre-pregnancy figure after giving birth to the couple's first baby, Robbie, last May, has also signed up to appear on a number of UK chat shows to discuss the issue.

Claudine, who has a first-class degree in economics from UCD, has made no secret of her desire to get into television in the past and was recently spotted with a tv crew in Liverpool, as she filmed clips for a show-reel.

And while other half Robbie (29) is currently playing out a loan contract with Celtic in Glasgow, the former Miss Ireland contestant has chosen to stay put in their Cheshire home to concentrate on building her media profile.

"I think you will be seeing more of me on Irish television and there's also some stuff on the other side of the water which could be very interesting," she said.

"I feel comfortable on television. It brings the best out of me."
