Dancing with the Stars NZ host and Woman’s Day A-list insider Dominic Bowden has been tapped to front The Hype, the first full-length entertainment programme from E! aimed at New Zealand and Australian audiences.

Dominic is set to co-host the weekly show from E!’s studios in Los Angeles alongside Ksenija Lukich, and together, the duo will deliver the latest goss from the world of entertainment. Ksenija will travel across Australia and New Zealand to get the inside scoop straight from the biggest premieres and parties, while Dominic will offer up his own spin on the biggest celebrity and entertainment news of the week.

Each week, Dominic and Ksenija will be joined by media commentators, fashion experts and special guests to dig into the hot topics and latest trends from the red carpet. When Woman's Day spoke to Dom, he was understandably ecstatic about the new show.

"When I moved to LA back in 2007, one of my first ever interviews was with fellow Idol host Ryan Seacrest on the set of E! news, we hung out for a week and I got to see first hand how hard he worked," he told us.

"I signed with his agents and he was a big reason why I moved to Los Angeles, so the fact I’m now going to be following in his footsteps hosting from the incredible multi million dollar E! set each week here in LA is absolutely mind blowing."

The Hype premieres Saturday, October 17 at 5.30pm and 10.30pm only on E! on SKY TV.
