MANILA - Karylle will be temporarily leaving "It's Showtime" for an undisclosed amount of time, the singer-host announced on Tuesday.
Karylle, who has been a host of the popular noontime program since 2010, explained that she will be part of a television series entitled "Private Investigator" in Singapore, and that filming will begin soon.
She will be portraying the role of a pole dancer in the series.
"Mami-miss ko ang 'It's Showtime' family kasi dito ako natuto to dream big," she said. "Tulad nga nung sabi nila, dito talaga ako nagumpisa mangarap para sa sarili ko. Ang Filipino, world-class athletes, world-class talents, so kailangan natin i-develop iyan."
This is Karylle's third time working on a project in Singapore. She was featured on the 2010 action-drama series "Point of Entry," and, three years later, landed a starring role in "The Kitchen Musical," a musical restaurant drama aired in over 12 countries in Asia.
