Former Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton famously fell over while unveiling a car on TV3’s The Apprentice – and said it’s one of the most watched videos on her on YouTube channel.

The incident happened on the popular reality show back in 2009 and the footage has been viewed almost 800,000 times since then.

“I believe it’s my most-watched YouTube video ever – even if you compare it to all the Liberty X hits and everything – me just falling on my bum is the most-watched thing about me,” she said.  “If I’d known it was that easy I would have done it earlier.”

Michelle is married to Dubliner Hugh Hanley and is in town to guest-present Xpose on TV3. The couple married in 2010 and have two children together, baby Aaron and Faith, who turns four next week.

“I’m very flattered to be asked to come over to host Xpose as a non-Irish woman,” she told the Anton Savage Show on Today FM.


“I suppose I’m an adopted Irish woman, because I stole one of your bachelors a few years ago and took him for myself,” she joked.

“I’m getting used to TV presenting now and I love the buzz – I get the same kicks out of live TV that I used to get from performing.”

The 36-year-old said she’s looking forward to talking about all things Celebrity Big Brother with her co-host Lisa Cannon.

“I was in it years ago, so I’m a connoisseur at this stage. I think the Irish guy, Jeremy, is coming across well,” she said.

Xpose airs on TV3 at 6pm.
