Is this a sign?
Patrick Kielty was at the IFTAs last night so of course he was asked about being the bookies favourite to take over the Late Late Show.
The race for the biggest job in Irish television took a few swings and turns last week when two favourites Claire Byrne and Sarah McInerney announced they wouldn't be taking over the job.
So all eyes are on Patrick Kielty right now!
When asked about it on the red carpet last night he chose his words very carefully and made sure that his answer was as coy as possible!
He gave a nod to the brilliant job that Ryan Tubridy has done hosting the chat show to date saying whoever the new host was would be very lucky and have "big shoes to fill".
Speaking to Goss.ie he said "I've done a chat show before, I've done a live show before, it's hard."

His wife Cat Deeley, who is also a successful presenter, was by his side on the red carpet and was asked if she'd be willing to move to Ireland if her husband got the gig.
"Let's see if we can get it first, we can talk about that then!"
