As a model and mum, Kerri Nicole Blanc is well used to running around after children and posing for the cameras.

And now Kerri is considering combining her two passions – trying her hand at kids TV.

The Kildare blonde, who is mum to little girl Kayla (4), regularly appears on Ireland AM and Xpose fashion slots and she admitted she wouldn’t mind swapping roles with the presenters.

“I’m open to anything life throws at me, it’s not something I have planned to do but if a door [for presenting] opens for me I’ll gladly walk in.

“I’d love to do kids TV if the opportunity ever came my way,” she told the Diary.

With Kayla heading off to primary school next September, Kerri is planning on returning to college where she will study fashion design and buying.

“I can’t wait to go back to college. At the moment I’m so busy with work that I’m not sure if I’ll manage right now, but once Kayla is in primary school I will 100pc be going back,” she said.
