Will Vogue bounce back to our screens as she films new pilot?

FORMER Fade Street star Vogue McFadden is veering away from the catwalk and back to our TV screens.

The model and DJ is preparing to take part in a pilot for Ireland's answer to MTV's hit show TRL – but will be "scarlet" if it doesn't get commissioned.

Vogue will be joined on screen by GAA star and stylist Paul Galvin and model Daniella Moyles to shoot the magazine-style show called Bounce later this month.

The pilot will be produced by Celebrity Salon producer John Norton and will be pitched to RTE.

"It hasn't been commissioned yet," Vogue says. "It's just a pilot. We'll be filming that in a few weeks. I don't know why John Norton mentioned that," she says.

"Scarlet for us if it doesn't get commissioned."

However, even if that doesn't work out, she is definitely set to follow in the footsteps of Grainne Seoige, Maia Dunphy and Mairead Farrell and is taking part in RTE2's next season of Reality Bites.

Vogue's upcoming hour- long documentary will focus on life Down Under.

"I'm really excited about it. It's about Australia and being there. I don't want to give too much away but I'm looking forward to it. It's my first proper presenting gig.

"I've done a lot of morning TV in Australia so I'm getting used to being in front of the camera. But this Reality Bites TV show will be one of the few times I haven't done live TV."

The newlywed – who married former Westlife star Brian McFadden eight months ago – is in the process of relocating closer to home.

"I'm moving to London later this year," she says. "There's more work there, I'm sure I'll be over in Dublin every second weekend. But London is better for Brian's song-writing."

But Vogue doesn't plan on starting a family anytime soon.
