She's best known as a presenter, but Kathryn Thomas is also a seriously savvy businesswoman.

Her media company, Aquarius Productions Ltd, bagged a tidy €230,000 accumulated profits for the popular star last year.

Accounts filed to the Companies Office showed an increase from €207,847 to €229,789 in the past 12 months.  That's an even greater increase in profits than in the previous 12 months when profits had climbed more than €22,000 from €184,997.

Kathryn (37) set up the company in 2007 and her career has gone from strength to strength.

She's currently busy fronting two of RTE's most successful shows - music reality series The Voice of Ireland and health and fitness series Operation Transformation.

The Voice of Ireland, now in its fourth series, consistently averages more than 500,000 viewers, which rivals the State broadcaster's flagship chat show the Late Late Show.

Meanwhile, Operation Transformation is smashing the ratings with the first show hitting a peak of 722,600 viewers.

She also hosted RTE's New Year's Eve event at the RDS.

However, Kathryn has also been keeping her fingers in pies outside of broadcasting.

She set up Pure Results bootcamp in Cork in March last year with prices starting at €1,199 for seven days of nutritional advice and workouts.

Kathryn rolled out the bootcamp, which facilitated 24 participants per course, last summer and Pure Results is taking bookings right through 2016.
