Late Lunch Live on TV3 will turn into a 'ladies lunch' as Sile Seoige has been drafted in to join Lucy Kennedy as a co-presenter.

Sile was asked to fill in today as Martin King is feeling under the weather this week.

While there has previously been several stand-in presenters on the show, including Sheana Keane and Jim McCabe, Sile will become the first female co-host to join Lucy in the studio, marking her return to daytime television.

The last time the Galway native presented a chat show was back in 2009, alongside sister Grainne on their day time show Seoige, which was cancelled after one season.


Sile has since presented a radio show on Newstalk and TV shows on TG4.

"I always have great craic when I go on Late Lunch Live and I've known Lucy for years so I can't wait to sit beside her on the couch. Forget 'Late Lunch Live', it's all about 'Ladies Who Lunch'," Sile said.

The 35-year-old TV presenter will release her charity Christmas single Maybe This Christmas in aid of the Make a Wish Foundation and the ISPCC's Childline services on December 5.
