Jenny Frost has been replaced as host of 'Snog, Marry, Avoid' by 'Show Me The Funny' comic Ellie Taylor
Jenny Frost has been replaced by Ellie Taylor as host of 'Snog, Marry, Avoid'.
The former Atomic Kitten host joked that she loves fake tan and make-up too much to continue being involved with the make-under show and wished her replacement - a former model who competed on comedian search show 'Show Me The Funny' - the best of luck.
She tweeted: "Sorry I couldn't tell you guys sooner-but yes there is a new series of SMAvoid but no,I won't be involved. Have loved doing the show........but come on guys lets face it, I love my tan, got false boobs & I wear more slap than Ru Paul on Halloween!!....
"good luck to the natural beauty that is @elliejanetaylor though!! Don't take any stick off Pod!!! Big kisses beautiful x (sic)"
Meanwhile, Ellie warned "orange people" to look out for her and the show's POD (personal overhaul device).
She tweeted: "Orange people of the UK beware! I'm dead chuffed to say I'll be presenting a brand new series of Snog, Marry, Avoid on BBC Three in the spring! (sic)"
Producers on the show - which will also feature new audio and graphics when it returns for a 10-part series this spring - are delighted with Ellie's appointment.
Producers Remarkable Television said: "Ellie, with her kooky girl-next-door warmth, will inject a big dose of comedy into the show. We will scour the country for the most OTT looks and fans of the show will see some of the most dramatic make-unders yet."
BBC commissioner Sam Bickley added: "Ellie brings a brand new comedy vibe to the format and a fun, big sister quality that will allow the extraordinary real life stories to emerge too."
