TV presenter and style guru Darren Kennedy is co-hosting TV3's flagship showbiz series Xposé this week.

Kennedy is the first male host in the show's summer line-up of guest presenters, following model and Dancing with the Stars contestant Thalia Heffernan's stint on the show. 

The presenter, whose previous work includes the RTÉ TV series The Unemployables, documentary Gay Daddy and the fashion show #Trending, said he's "delighted" to be coming on board alongside Karen Koster, Glenda Gilson and Cassie Stokes.

"As a longtime friend of the show, I'm delighted to be guest hosting Xposé for the week", he said. "So far I've spent most of the summer travelling from London and Paris Fashion Weeks, to the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix so it's a real treat to guest host Xposé, be on home turf, and catch up with the TV3 gang.

"Most importantly of all, I can't wait to bring viewers the latest in entertainment and fashion news each evening. We're going to have lots fun!"

Kennedy's name is synonymous with fashion in Ireland, having collaborated with Louis Copeland on a series of capsule collections and also working with Specsavers on a range of glasses.

The TV star has also hosted shows on the BBC, ITV and Channel 5.

Kennedy will co-host Xposé until Friday July 7.
