TV personality Kathryn Thomas is singing all the way to the bank after 'The Voice of Ireland' presenter saw her company generate profits of €28,523 last year.

New filings at the Companies Office for her Aquarius Productions firm reveal that accumulated profits at the business rose by 21pc to €159,927 in the 12 months to the end of February 2012.

The amount of cash held by the business soared to €113,598 from €42,117.

The company is controlled and owned by Ms Thomas (34) and filings show that she set up the firm in 2007 as her TV career blossomed.

The accounts for the firm also reveal that she and fellow director Peter Gwynne Thomas – her father – are owed €67,343 by the company by way of an interest-free loan.

In an interview with the 'RTE Guide' this week, Ms Thomas confirmed that she was in discussions with RTE on new projects.

After the upcoming final of 'The Voice of Ireland', Ms Thomas plans to go abroad.

"I have two months off, so I am going to do a bit of travel, get lost, go exploring, reconnect with the sort of travel that I haven't done in a while," she said.

Ms Thomas added that 'The Voice' has been a success because, "it has been proven in Ireland that shows that involve people singing are going to be popular".
