Lucy Kennedy has opened up for the first time about her Blind Date show being scrapped by TV3.
The presenter had previously gushed about her excitement at being the new Cilla Black, but she insists she’s not hung up on the fact that it’s now been cut.
“Do you know what I’m not sad about it, I think it makes sense,” she told Goss.ie.
“Dating has changed completely now, it’s totally different from when I was doing it. People are all online and you can look anyone up on Facebook and see what they’re like now, so dating isn’t really blind anymore.”
The news didn’t come a surprise to the Seven O’Clock Show host and she revealed that TV3 director Linda McQuaid filled her in on the decision before it was announced.
“Blind Date isn’t happening now – I had a chat with Lynda and she thinks the format of the show is outdated and I think she’s right”, Lucy said.
Speaking to The Diary, the 39-year-old hinted that there was much more exciting things around the corner and a show on the horizon that’s “definitely more her”.
“We’ve been talking about another show and I have to say I’m very happy about it,” the mother-of-two revealed.
Although we were excited about the return of Blind Date, we’re really looking forward to seeing what’s next on the cards for the lovely host.
Until then we can catch her on her evening show with Martin King and also taste her delicious sandwiches – Lucy recently teamed with Flora to create a range of tasty recipes.
