Roman Kemp ‘in advanced talks’ to host Catfish UK as he’s the ‘perfect fit’
Roman Kemp is ‘in talks’ to host a UK version of Catfish, a show that questions whether emotionally entangled people’s online relationship are real or not
Roman Kemp is reportedly in advanced talks to front the first ever UK series of Catfish.
The Capital Breakfast host, 27, is no stranger to reality TV after winning the nation’s hearts on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Last year.
The handsome son of Martin and Shirlie Kemp could be about to add to his broadcasting accolades however as it’s claimed that Roman is the front runner to host the UK version of the incredibly successful MTV series.
A TV insider told The Sun that Roman is the perfect person to live up to Nev Schulman – who is the creator and host of the American series.
“Roman is the man with the golden touch when it comes to plum jobs on the telly at the moment and MTV are keen to get a slice of that pie” the source told.
“For MTV and the production team behind Catfish here in the UK, Roman would be their ideal presenter for the show. He’s quick-witted, funny and has a massive following on social media, which makes him the perfect person for their target audience.”
According to the TV expert, Roman is already in talks with MTV bosses who are eager to get the ball rolling on his next broadcasting venture.
“He was approached for a screen test at the end of last month and his team have been negotiating on fees.
“Catfish is massive over the pond and they think the British version could be just as successful. The first series is being planned over eight episodes, which will all be an hour long, and will air in 2021.”
Catfish became a global success back in 2012 when presenter Nev Sculman took it upon himself to discover whether emotionally entangled people’s online relationship are real or not.
