Coming soon: Warne the tv host

Cricinfo

Shane Warne was nicknamed “Hollywood” early in his career, back when he complained his life was like a soap opera. He could be more like Oprah if he guest hosts a variety television show in Australia later in the year.

The Sunday Herald Sun reported Warne would be involved in the light entertainment show for Channel 9. "We will have the top bands and interviews with big names who are coming out for the Ashes, like Mick Jagger and Michael Parkinson,” an insider told the paper.

"Warney has great contacts and will attract the best talent. All the celebrities love him. Only last week he was at the races with Liz Hurley in the UK."
