Welsh popstar Charlotte Church has been given her own prime time slot on Friday night television for a live UK chat show.

TV bosses at British broadcasting network Channel 4 insist the 20-year-old CRAZY CHICK hitmaker has the perfect personality to host the show, which will include celebrity interviews, live music and comedy.

An insider says, "If we can get this right it will be amazing.

"Charlotte's got a great personality. She's so young but has been in the public eye for so long that there is a certain fearlessness about her.

"And she wants to give it a go because she thinks it will be a fun and cool thing to do."

The Welsh star turned down the chance to present a show for rival network ITV1 because it wasn't exciting enough.

The Channel 4 source explains, "ITV dropped the ball when it came to her.

"They were absolutely desperate to work with her but didn't have any new ideas to offer.

"In the end they said she could host a revived BLIND DATE. That did not appeal to her at all."

Church will be given the series later this year (06) providing she impresses TV bosses with a screen test and pilot show.
