Kildare native Pippa has already had some experience as a presenter - she joined her husband of almost three years, Brian Ormond, to co-anchor the National Lottery on RTE recently and said she got a “great kick out of it”.

The blonde beauty has been enjoying a busy schedule since welcoming her first son Ollie a year ago. In addition to motherhood, she’s been back on the catwalk and has been gaining traction with her website. Furthermore, she has released her debut collection of wedding invitations, a collaboration with a company called Miller And Lamb.
