Katja Mia’s star is on the up and up.
The model-turned-presenter will be able to flex her skills this week on Ireland AM as she is stepping in for Muireann O’Connell.
The Limerick woman is on holidays, meaning that Katja will be filling in for her. The beauty had previously appeared on the morning show as an entertainment contributor.
She shared the news on Instagram admitting: “I’ve never been so excited to wake up at 4:30am”!
Katja gave her followers a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on before heading onto set, as she changed into a beautiful red dress.
She admitted: “I’m getting mic’d up…all feels real now.”
It was no surprise that she was welcomed with open arms, with Ireland AM sharing a picture of Katja alongside Tommy Bowe and Alan Hughes.
“While Muireann is off on her holliers, the wonderful Katja Mia will be keeping the lads company in studio and they’ve promised to be on their best behaviour! We’ll see how long that lasts,” the caption read.
And viewers were just as delighted to see Katja on their screens this morning.
Makeup artist Sandra Gillen wrote: “Like you’ve been there years. Delighted to see your lovely face this morning girl.”
Another viewer commented: “Superstar.”
“An icon, a natural, a queen,” a third noted.
She was inundated with lovely comments from friends and viewers who were delighted to see her up there.
Earlier this year VIP Magazine caught up with Katja just days after she made her Ireland AM debut.
She told us: “I just had my first TV debut on Ireland AM. It was honestly the best. Muireann and Tommy just made me feel so comfortable. I’m really looking forward to working with them. I was presenting before, but moreso online, I had a gig with Maya Jama’s beauty line.”
We can’t see what’s next for Katja!
