TELLY CHANCE FOR TERRY'S GIRL.

Byline: JIM GALLAGHER

TERRY Wogan's sexy young niece could follow in her famous uncle's footsteps tomorrow by clinching her own TV show.

Paula Wogan, 22, has made it to the last five out of 1500 people who auditioned live on television to become the presenter of a new game programme.

The winner of the high profile competition will be named tomorrow on RTE's Selection Box, a fly-on-the-wall type show based on Britain's hit Popstars programme.

Today we carry an exclusive picture of the five would-be presenters who are battling it out to become a star of the future.

Just two months ago the Irish Sunday People revealed how Paula's older sister Jane was also bidding for TV stardom after a sexy photo shoot in British lads magazine Maxim.

Jane, 23, was subsequently snapped up by Britain's Channel 5 to front a holiday programme.

And this week the gorgeous blonde's long legs were voted the sexiest in Ireland in Social & Personal magazine.

Now little sis Paula is hoping to follow Jane onto the small screen.

The former journalism and media student has just finished working as an extra for two months on the blockbuster film Rain of Fire starring Matthew McConnaughey and Christian Bale.

Paula said it was her dad Brian - Terry's younger brother - who first heard of The Selection Box and told his daughter to apply.

"I never had any intention of pursuing this type of career but I went along to see what it was all about," said Paula.

"I wasn't nervous because there were so many people I never imagined I would get anywhere."

Whoever wins tomorrow's Selection Box will go on to present a new game show series called The Fame Game which will give viewers the chance to meet their idols.
