JENNIFER Zamparelli appeared on our screens in the fourth series of BBC’s The Apprentice, describing herself as “the best female saleswoman in Europe at the moment”.
Then known as Jennifer Maguire, the Dublin native appeared in the film in 2008.
Since then, she has returned to Ireland and become one of our biggest TV and radio stars.
The radio queen has joined Nicky Byrne on screen as the co-host of Dancing With The Stars replacing Amanda Byram.
This is the reduction of the RTE star.
HOW IS JENNIFER AND WHERE IS SHE FROM?
Jennifer Zamparelli was born in April 1980, this year she is 38 years old.
She is from Baldoyle in Dublin.
WHO IS JENNIFER AND WHEN IS THE FIRST TELEVISION?
The hot Irishwoman first broke her film career when she appeared on the UK’s Apprentice show in 2008.
A 27-year-old marketing consultant, she tells Apprentice bosses that when she first ran an office, she made £60,000 in six months with no training.
In the media, the self-styled businesswoman is described as ‘an icy maiden’. She was fired on the show’s seventh week. But this is just the beginning.
Upon her return to Ireland, Jennifer began pursuing a career in television at home.
ELSE IS SHE KNOW WHAT TO DO?
Jennifer started building her career from the very beginning when she appeared on the RTE reality show, Failte Towers, where the then 28-year-old made it to the final.
Soon after, Zamparelli joined the long-running satirical clip show, Republic of Telly on RTE Two.
Jennifer has already made a name for herself by walking on the red carpet and asking celebrities confusing and rude questions.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE DAYS?
Jennifer presents her own programming on RTE 2fm every weekday morning from 9am to 12pm.
Jennifer and her former co-broadcaster Bernard O’Shea also wrote and starred in Bridget and Eamon – based on a pair of characters they played in sketches on Republic of Telly.
The sitcom gained massive fan following as the duo played “a typical 80’s unhappy married Irish couple”.
The presenter will return to the screens on January 9 to host the popular dance show with Nicky.
The star of Republic of Telly insist that it is a “give” she will take home the same amount of cash as Westlife star Nicky Byrne as she entered talks with the producers.
WHEN SHOULD SHE MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS?
The Irish comedian married British actor Lau Zamparelli at a ceremony at Leslie Castle, Monaghan, in July 2014. The couple have two children – Florence and Enzo.
The Dublin woman said: ‘I’ve been going around and telling people this because I basically look fat.
“I went up the pole. Noodles in the oven. The stork is coming.”
Former Irish columnist Sun, 38, welcomed her first child Florence with husband Lau in March 2015.
She previously told Independent.ie: “She was funny, she was very social.
“She will run away with anyone and she loves to play in the dirt.
“She looks like Lau, she’s just his little one.
“She doesn’t look like me at all, but I definitely remember giving birth to her, I definitely remember what happened, so she must be mine.
“But she’s the nanny’s daughter, and we’re great friends. She is very cheerful and approachable. “
