Rachel set for TV3 as her ratings race ahead

TV host Rachel Wyse will be zooming on to TV3 after her show Xcelerate raced ahead in the ratings.

The Herald can reveal that car fanatics will be seeing a lot more of the former model after station bosses moved the motoring show from 3e.

"We're starting filming for series two and it's moving to TV3 in March," she said.

"We got brilliant feedback from series one and this is my dream job," she said.

Dubbed Ireland's answer to Top Gear, the show is a firm favourite with car fans.

Rachel (25) admits she was subjected to sexism when she started. But the former professional showjumper took it all in her stride.

Rachel, of Johnstown, Naas said: "I was a novice but hope-fully I have proved myself."
