Former model turned TV presenter Amanda Byram will reportedly host the coverage of the royal wedding for a major US network.

According to the Evening Herald, the 'Total Wipeout' presenter, 37, will present TLC network's week-long special leading up to Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton.

The Dubliner has previously hosted NBC's makeover show 'The Swan' but this is the first time she has hosted a major international event.

Byram is currently planning her own wedding to fiancé, and former Leicester rugby player Craig McMullen, whom she began dating three years ago.

The couple met at her best friend's wedding in the summer of 2008 and apparently the bride had been eager for them to meet!

Byram said: "She had actually been trying to set us up for six years.

"He was in a neck brace when I met him and if I fell in love with him wearing that, I'm sure it's real love."

TLC's run-up to the wedding will feature a number of high profile stars, including model and author India Hicks, who was a bridesmaid at Princess Diana's wedding to Prince Charles.

Designers Carolina Herrera and Danielle Issa will also feature in the programme ahead of the wedding in Westminster Abbey on Friday 29 April.
