Simon Cowell has reportedly predicted that Kian Egan will have a massive television career in the future.

The former Westlife singer has been trying to pursue other avenues since his band split last year and just a few months ago he hit the headlines when he was crowned ‘King Of The Jungle’ on I’m A Celebrity ……Get Me Out Of Here.

Kian was a massive hit with the public and his easygoing manner easily resonated with audiences, as did his clear devotion to wife Jodi Albert and son Koa. We Brits are suckers for a family man!

Egan has landed himself an occasional showbiz slot on This Morning and recently he interviewed his old boss for the ITV daytime show.

After the interview Simon told him: “I can see the TV career on the horizon. That was a great interview..”

Let’s face it, Simon has been interviewed enough times over the years to know!

Kian told Hello magazine that he’d love to have his own chat show and he’s delighted with the ‘exposure’ he’s gained from being in the jungle and eating kangaroo penis. Who knew?

Kian is currently pursuing his TV dream in Ireland, where he coaches on the local version of The Voice.

However the big opportunities for him will come after he cuts his teeth on shows like This Morning and Daybreak. He’s been presenting various segments on both shows over the last year and as you can see from the videos below. he’s clearly getting better with experience.

Meanwhile, Kian announced last month that he had signed to Rhino Records of Warner Music Group and his debut album ‘HOME’ will be released on Friday March 14 in Ireland, and Monday March 17 in UK.
