Warbling wannabes tempt Cat Deeley back to Blighty
PRESENTER Cat Deeley reckons she’s all agog to be returning to UK shores after a stint in the US.
The noughties presenter, who is coming home to host a new reality warbling contest, Sing: Ultimate A Capella, spent several years living in Los Angeles, where she appeared on game shows including So You Think You Can Dance, The Choice and Celebrity Name Game.
Known for her roles on children’s weekend programme CD:UK (alongside Ant and Dec) and Stars In Their Eyes, her time away has seen her raise her child Milo with husband and comedian Patrick Kielty.
But next weekend she will be back on Britain’s screens to front the new show that will pitch amateur singers against each other.
The mother of one, 40, said: ‘I’m very excited to be home.
‘I mean, I always consider the UK my home anyway, because my friends and family are here.
‘It was actually really exciting to walk on to the floor as I knew loads of the crew from back in the SMTV and CD:UK days.’
The presenter started her career as a model, then went onto host MTV show Hitlist UK.
■ Sing: Ultimate A Cappella airs on October 6 at 9pm on Sky 1 and NOW TV.
