Jennifer Zamparelli has been a busy woman this summer, from her radio show to her new business venture.

But as the colder months draw in, we’re all thinking about one thing – Dancing with the Stars.

And the 2FM presenter is already working on the show. Specifically working towards finding a new co-host.

Nicky Byrne announced that he would be stepping down from the series this summer to the dismay of fans.

And this means that Jen will be presenting alongside a brand new face. When VIP Magazine caught up with her, she was in the thick of casting!

Speaking about Nicky’s departure, Jennifer tells us: “I had a feeling he’d go because of the Westlife tour but honestly.”

“He’s such a gent and we had a lot of ffun; he’s gonna be so missed. But now it’s like, who’s next? They are casting at the minute. Then they’ll do a chemistry test.”

As for what Jennifer thinks is needed in a co-host she tells us: “It’s a big show, it’s a beast, it’s a long run, it’s live, there are lots of elements.”

So clearly, it’s not an easy gig!

“The all-female producers from ShinAwil have to run this really tight ship on a shoestring budget and make it look amazing so I suspect they will want someone who won’t give them any hassle.

“And that stands to you in this business. I always say that I think I got so many chances because I am not an arsehole to work with. Because that runner that you were rude to is now a producer.
Be. Nice. To. Everybody.”

Wise words to live by!
