tv-newsroom606180.jpgNatasha Kaplinsky is to co-present a new evening programme on Five, according to reports.

The TV Newsroom broke the news last month, that Matthew Wright will be one of the presenters for the new programme entitled ‘Five & Friends’

A Five insider told the Mail on Sunday: ?Natasha is the highest paid and most high-profile presenter on the station and would be the perfect choice for a chat show.

?In principal, Natasha has said that she?s happy to make the pilot. There will be the money issue to sort out if the programme gets the green light. Five will be worried that Natasha may want too much money, and they will be reluctant to pay her much more because she is already paid a fortune.

?But there is a sense that Five want to get their money?s worth from her, and they are hoping that because they have been so accommodating with her maternity leave, a deal that is mutually acceptable can be reached.’
