MANILA — Ruffa Gutierrez is returning to hosting with "Love Thy Chika," a new digital talk show from ABS-CBN launching next week.

"Love Thy Chika" is a program under OKS, or Online Kapamilya Shows — a collection of unique content produced from home and available to stream at home amid the coronavirus lockdown.

The weekly virtual talk show promises "shocking revelations" as Gutierrez interviews her co-stars in the afternoon drama "Love Thy Woman," among them Kim Chiu, Xian Lim, Christopher de Leon, Sunshine Cruz, and Eula Valdez.

"Alam ko kasi 'yung mga tao sa bahay bored na bored na, gusto nilang makipag-chikahan sa mga tao. Iyon ang ibibigay namin sa kanila," Gutierrez said on Thursday night, during the live launch of OKS via Facebook and YouTube.

Gutierrez, who has hosted numerous talk shows including ABS-CBN's "The Buzz," teased that Cruz, in particular, had a "no holds barred" interview.

De Leon, meanwhile, will share his experience battling COVID-19, from being diagnosed to his full recovery, according to Gutierrez.

"Love Thy Chika" will premiere on May 17, 12 noon, with subsequent episodes released weekly.
