Amanda is something special for weekend

TV beauty Amanda Byram (38) will be sharing a presenting role on Something For The Weekend with Louise Redknapp before it finishes.

The Castleknock-born presenter has been filling in for the other half of soccer star Jamie Redknapp while she holidays with her family in South Africa.

And although it's due to finish in two months, the bubbly celeb has revealed how this is not the last we've seen of her on the early morning Sunday lifestyle programme.

"I love it, but Louise is back next week. But I'm on a few more before it comes to an end," she said.

Former model Amanda, who's engaged to rugby player Craig McMullen, has been going down a storm with audiences of the BBC2 show.

Some viewers even prefer her to Louise -- one said Amanda was the "best female presenter" to have been on the programme, sparking speculation that she could be given a permanent slot on a similar show.

The BBC's shock decision to end the food and chat show has prompted a furious reaction from TV fans. More than 25,000 viewers have joined a Facebook group appealing for the Beeb to save the show.
