LIMERICK’S former Mister World, Kamal Ibrahim, has landed another television gig on a new RTE reality show.

The presenter, who is from Thomondgate, will be one of the leading faces of In Your Shoes, a television programme about four able-bodied children and four children with physical disabilities working together on a constant “obstacle course”.

Mr Ibrahim will be one of the on-screen mentors for the eight kids, who will all meet at the Delphi Training Lodge, Galway, in episode one, which will air on RTÉ Two next Monday, at 5pm.

The former Limerick Chronicle columnist will join Daráine Mulvihill, who presented Channel 4’s Paralympic coverage in 2012, throughout the series.

In the pilot episode, each of the 16 and 17-year-olds will be paired off and they will be put through intensive training for a “mission” that is as yet unnamed.

They will be told that they will be taking a trip to Costa Rica where the eight episodes will be based.
