Nicky’s bro bags new rte series

HIS brother Nicky Byrne has become part of the RTE furniture with his own 2FM show and now the Westlife star’s brother Adam (inset) is making waves at the national broadcaster.

Adam Byrne has been lined-up by the Montrose station’s TV department to bring a brand new series called The Speech to the small screen - and he’s currently on the lookout for fresh faces to appear in the production.

The Speech is a documentary-style programme which focuses on people who are uncomfortable with public speaking. Each episode will follow a different person with a different type of upcoming speech they have to perform.

They will be mentored by a celebrity face who themselves have had to tackle public speaking in the past. Under the guidance of their famous tutor, as well as with the help of professional vocal coaches, the entrants will deliver the speech they’ve dreaded for so long.

RTE have already aired a pilot episode - enlisting the help of George Hook to dish out his top tips for success - and Adam is now looking forward to producing a full series after bosses gave it the green light.
