Amanda Byram has dismissed rumours that she's set to present a new show for TV3.

The presenter turned fitness guru was said to be in talks to present her own Friday night chat show on the channel. However, the former model said that while she would love to work with TV3 in the future, she has no plans for her own show just yet.

"This is the first I've heard of it, but I'd love to do something like that," she told the Herald. "I'm actually meeting with RTE and TV3 today - I mean, I'm definitely talking to them about doing stuff, but there's nothing on the table.

"All these rumours are so funny, but I'd love to work with TV3 again - that's where I started. I mean, I owe them my career."

The former Ireland AM presenter (41) said her dream would be to front a Ross Kemp-style show.

"Entertainment is my bread and butter and I love it, but I'd love to do a fact-entertainment show," she said.

"I want to be the new Ross Kemp. I'd love to go beyond borders because no women do that. Like Ross Kemp, but not as life-threatening. I'm adventurous - I'm a bit of a tomboy, I love all that and getting into the heart of things."

Byram was talking at the launch of the Dubai Duty Free 150th Irish Derby which takes place at the Curragh on June 27.


The Castleknock native is the official style ambassador for this year's festival and will be one of the judging panel seeking out the most stylish lady on Derby Day. The winner will walk away with prizes worth up to €20,000. Tickets are €25 if booked before June 24 and return luxury coach travel is available for an additional €10.
