Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne has landed a new Tv game show in his native Ireland.

The singer will host The Million Euro Challenge - a new venture between Tv bosses at Rte and The National Lottery.

The show will be broadcast on Saturday nights, beginning on 10 January (15).

Byrne, who is a popular radio host in Ireland, says, "I'm really excited about the show airing in the New Year. I've been working with The Million Euro Challenge team learning all about the new games and I think the format of the show is brilliant."
