UK reality star Myleene Klass will host I’m a Celebrity 2

The host for I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here 2 will be Myleene Klass, a UK TV personality who was the runner-up of the sixth edition of the show in the UK, according to the British press. NBC, however, has yet to confirm or announce her participation.

Klass has also hosted CNN International’s Screening Room, and in 2001, appeared on the UK’s Popstars, becoming a member of Hear’Say, so she should feel comfortable around the cast of mostly reality show stars well.

Metro UK reports that since then, she “has meticulously transformed herself into a money-spinning A-lister” and recently “helped rescue one of UK’s biggest brands Marks & Spencer when it gave her £1million to be the face of their resurrection back in 2007.”

The paper claims that “UK executives are loathed at the thought of Klass going States-side as many had tipped her to … replace Fern Britton on ITV’s This Morning.”

The Sing-Off loses its star

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
