Liz Bonnin won't appear on reality TV show

Liz Bonnin won't ever appear on a reality TV show.

The Irish television presenter, 39, would never sign up to a series like 'Strictly Come Dancing' or 'Celebrity Big Brother' because she's "too busy" globe-trotting.

Asked if she would appear on a reality TV show, the beauty said: "I'm too busy travelling with the day job!"

However, although her hands are tied up with her current projects, Liz would love to host 'Top of the Pops', which she fronted in 2002, if the music chart show made a return to screens but at the moment she feels she's living her "dream job" by exploring biochemistry and animal biology.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I loved when we used to film extra songs for 'TOTP2', so when acts like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Coldplay and Beyonce came on and played three or four songs I was in heaven.

"I really loved presenting that show, but my passion lies in science and the natural world so I'm doing my dream job now as a biochemist and wild animal biologist."

Meanwhile, this year looks set to be a busy one for the 'Countrywise' host as she has various projects lined up.

The brunette beauty is currently a science presenter and a role model for EDF Energy's #PrettyCurious programme, which aims to encourage young girls aged between 11 and 16 to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects at school and into their future careers.
