Greg O'Shea set to host a new show on Virgin Media with Muireann O’Connell

He's stepping into the hosting seat once more.

Greg O'Shea has been announced as the new co-host of Virgin Media's latest rugby show. The show, which will be a rugby-based entertainment-led show will coincide with the coverage of the Six Nations.

Greg, along with Six O'Clock host Muireann O'Connell, will front the Thursday night programme which is scheduled to air after Love Island.

Since his breakout in the villa, the rugby player has become fond of the hosting seat, first stepping in to replace Eoghan McDermott while he took time off to work on Australia's Love Island.

He was a major hit sitting beside Doireann Garrihy on the 2FM breakfast show, however he recently told Her.ie that he doesn't want to go down the route of a traditional Islander.

"What I want to do now is use my profile to do something good, so I've kind of gone a bit against the grain of what a normal islander would do," he says.

"I'm at the age now where I can really invest in myself (...) so I'm kind of taking that time because I don't know what I'm doing anymore," he says. "I don't really know where I'm going to go."

"[But] I'm happy with what I'm doing. It might be a bit different and weird, but I'm happy."
