Greg O’Shea has bagged himself a new presenting gig on Virgin Media

Greg O’Shea has been in high demand since winning Love Island last summer and it seems he’s about to get even busier with a brand new show on Virgin Media.

The Limerick man has been signed up to front The Late Tackle, an ‘entertainment show with a focus on rugby’, that is set to launch in time for the Six Nations.

The news comes as Virgin Media launches its spring programming schedule, with the station confirming that Greg will be presenting the show alongside Muireann O’Connell of the Six O’Clock Show.

For her part, Muireann has moved to nip the obvious ‘Late Tackle’ jokes in the bud before they, ahem, kick off…

Virgin Media will once again be bringing the Six Nations to Irish audiences with Andy Farrell’s first game in charge scheduled for Saturday, February 1 at home to Scotland.

Greg O’Shea sprang to fame last summer when he won Love Island alongside Amber Gill but before that, he had already carved out a career in rugby. In December, he was named in the Ireland 7s team for the World Sevens Series as they bid to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.

His expertise is sure to be put to good use on The Late Tackle and it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
