Podge and Rodge are coming back to our screens with a brand new host.
At the Autumn launch today, our favourite funny woman, Doireann Garrighy announced that she will be joining Podge and Rodge as their host in their return to RTE 2.
Podge and Rodge are played by Ciaran Morrison and Mick O’Hara, who are also the men behind Zig and Zag. They will be their usual selves back in the Ballydung Manor with plenty of slagging and top Irish acts.
Previously, The Podge and Rodge Show ran from 2006 to 2008 with Lucy Kennedy as the host.
Last night Doireann took to Instagram hinting that she had some big news to reveal and now that she has she is still pinching herself.
“It’s coming back and I am hosting alongside Podge and Rodge, I can’t believe it, I’m still pinching myself,” Garrihy told RTÉ Entertainment. “I’m so delighted to be involved.”
“From the minute I walked in and met them first I was like, ‘If I don’t get this gig, I’ll be gutted’ and I got it and I’m so thrilled to be here and to be involved in it,” she said.
When asked if the duo are still as rude as ever, she laughed, “They are yeah, even more so, they’ve come back with a bang, more vulgarity. I think I’m able to handle them – hopefully.”
