Republic of Telly returns shortly to our screens shortly and along with it a brand new presenter joining Kevin McGahern and the gang.

And it is..... (*drumroll please*) Joanne McNally! Okay many of you may not know of her yet but she is an up and coming comedian from Dublin who you might have caught at a comedy night or seen on tour with the likes of PJ Gallagher.

McNally has just tweeted the news today so we don't know any official details yet but we are assuming she will be taking over from Jennifer Maguire who had a baby recently enough and is currently busy presenting Breakfast Republic on 2fm, as well as the Republic of Telly spin-off series Bridget and Eamon.

Anyone who has seen McNally live will know she is well up to the task and we're looking forward to seeing what antics she gets up to.

*Update!* - Here's a trailer for the new series featuring Kevin and Joanne...
