When The Showbiz Report on e.tv returns with new episodes in 2012 viewers won't see Nicky Greenwall.
You're reading it here first.
I can exclusively break the news that when The Showbiz Report on e.tv returns in 2012, viewers won't be seeing the show's longtime presenter Nicky Greenwall.
The Showbiz Report, e.tv's weekly entertainment news magazine show on Saturday nights is currently off the air and replaced with pre-packaged rundown lists. I can reveal however that The Showbiz Report will start again on Saturday 14 January with the first brand-new produced episode. It will however not feature Nicky Greenwall anchoring the episode from a Cape Town locale as has been the case the past few years.
''Nicky Greenwall will not appear on screen when the show returns in January,'' e.tv answered after I made several enquiries about the show's return. ''She will do voice-overs,'' says the broadcaster. According to insiders Nicky Greenwall's full return to the show will only really be in mid-February 2012 when she returns from maternity leave.
She gave birth to her and Robin Fryer's daughter Georgina Fryer on 28 September and has been on maternity leave since after finishing and pre-recording the well-produced and critically-liked profile series, The Close Up.
