Vogue Williams has declared “Tonight is the night!!!!” as the new show she hosts The Big Deal goes on air at 8pm on Virgin Media Television.

The model clearly couldn’t contain her excitement as she took to Instagram to write: “To say I’m excited for you to watch this and see the talent is an understatement… hope you enjoy.”

Immediately fellow celebrities added their words of encouragement and support with Angela Scanlon posting: “Big deal. HUGE!!” while Nadia Forde added: “So excited for you. Cannot wait x”

The Dubliner took on hosting duties for the show while the judging line-up features Jedward, ex-JLS popstar Aston Merrygold, rising music star Lyra, and comedian and actor Deirdre O’Kane.

This will be Vogue’s biggest gig to date and one she hopes will make her into a bona fide live TV presenter.

“This is my first shiny floor show,” the 35-year-old told Sunday World’s Eugene Masterson. “I didn’t want it to end or be over, I love it. I feel really at ease with it.

“The show is incredible, the talent in it. You’d expect some people to be a bit rubbish, but the talent is so incredible. Its lucky I don’t have to choose, it’s so hard to choose."

After each act, the performers are offered a deal: they can either accept a cash buyout and leave the competition with a sum of money — or they can reject the offer and hope they’ve impressed the judges enough to progress through to the final and the chance to win a life-changing prize pot

“I just think it’s really fun, offering people money,” she added. “You just don’t know what people are going to do."

The model and TV presenter currently lives in London with her husband Spencer Matthews and their two children, Theodore (2) and Gigi (1).

Vogue has been spending more time in Ireland since Covid-19 restrictions have eased, crashing in the couple’s Howth mansion while she worked on The Big Deal.

Vogue added that she’d be open to moving to the States if The Big Deal got picked up over there.

She said: “Obviously if I got invited to go over and make The Big Deal in America it would be absolutely brilliant because I love hosting the show.

“I’ve never considered America but a work opportunity like that would be incredible. But it’s not something I’m hunting down but at the same time it would be amazing.

“At the moment, I’m happy with my spot. I love working in England and being so close to home."

The Big Deal is on Virgin Media One tonight at 8pm.
