H & Claire are new SM:TV Live hosts
Former Steps stars Claire and H are taking over from James Redmond as hosts of SM:tv Live. The duo will present the show with Brian Dowling and Tess Daly. They have also recently signed a £4 million deal with WEA records.
Claire told The Mirror: “I’m really excited, It’s a dream come true.”
Conor McAnally, director of entertainment programming at Blaze Television who make the show, added: “H and Claire have been SM:tv regulars for years and are extremely popular with viewers. “They have a great sense of humour and really enjoy what they do. They are the perfect choice to join the SM:tv team and continue our success story.” H and Claire are due to release DJ, their first single as a duo, on 11 May.
Notice how the single is now out a week later, on 11 May?
