Keeping up with the Taylors: Katie Taylor gets set for own RTE reality show

Olympic boxer Katie Taylor looks set to get her own reality TV show with RTE.

The Bray fighter has been in talks with the State station to follow in the footsteps of Jedward, Kelly Mongan and Conor McGregor with her own series.

And Katie  – who would be seen training ahead of the Rio Olympics – said she is “very open” to having cameras follow her around.

She said: “Nothing is set in stone yet, but I’m very open to it. My dad sat down with RTE a few weeks ago and everything was put out on the table.

“There is a lot of things to consider before you commit to something like that. It’s very intrusive, you have to think about your family.”

And Katie said she is already a big fan of Conor McGregor’s Notorious series, which airs on RTE 2.

“I don’t know much about MMA, but I love watching him. He is an entertainer, you never know what he is going to come out with. I would love to meet him,” she told the Herald.

Meanwhile, Katie said at the Sky Sports Living for Sport initiative that she is now better than ever ahead of the European Championships in Azerbaijan this June.

She said: “I feel I’m better now than I was in London; I’m boxing better and pushing harder. I’m injured at the minute with my wrist, so I’ve been working on my fitness.”
