EXCLUSIVE! James Kavanagh teases Ireland’s Got Talent return

The show was recently axed after two seasons - but is it gone forever?


Ireland’s Got Mór Talent host James Kavanagh has revealed that the show “could come back.”

The Virgin Media series, which was axed after two seasons, saw acts compete to win €50,000 and their very own TV special by showcasing the best of their talents.

Speaking exclusively to Goss.ie, the TV presenter said he was sad to see it go, but sparked hope that the show will make a comeback.


“It was sad to see it go because I had such craic filming with Glenda,” James said.

“We had two amazing years and from chatting to Virgin Media and the people in there it’s not a complete full stop, it could come back in a couple of years,” he explained.

“I had a great time but it’s time to look at other projects.”

Fuelling rumours that the show will return, IGT’s main host Lucy Kennedy recently told us that the series is just “on ice” for the moment.

Speaking about future projects, James said he recently filmed a pilot episode of a show with RTÉ news veteran, Anne Doyle.


“I was just in Düsseldorf with Anne Doyle for a pilot for a TV show.”

“I can’t say too much about it but it involves me and Anne travelling,” he continued.

“[Now] it’s up to the TV bosses if they wanna commission it or not, so hopefully that gets the green light.”

The social media star also took part in The Restaurant on Thursday night, where he impressed judges with his Japanese inspired dishes.
