TV star Rachel back in capital for sky sports special on home turf

PRESENTER Rachel Wyse's Sky Sports News career is on the rise.

The Kildare-born beauty is in Dublin filming a package for Sky Sports News Special Report series.

Rachel (26) has been in Dublin since Wednesday to film links for the weekly programme, which focuses on a different sports topics.

Since nabbing the coveted presenting gig, ambitious Rachel has so far been in studio presenting the news, with this latest project marking a major coup for the former model.

"Rachel is doing really well and is progressing up the ladder very quickly since joining Sky Sports News," said a station source.

"It is a great sign for her that they're allowing her branch out and film report packages.

"It worked out particularly well for her that the location happened to be her home country of Ireland."

Rachel has wasted little time in making her mark, even volunteering to compete at this year's Cheltenham Festival in an amateur ladies charity race.


The Kildare beauty raised over £11,000 in aid of Cancer Research UK when she saddled JP McManus' Silent Jo in the charity event.

Rachel has competed professionally as a show-jumper and was among the high profile names at the Dublin Horse Show.

The ex-Assets model recently spoke of her love for her new job, describing Sky as "a great place to work".
