AceShowbiz - YouTube queen Lilly Singh has landed her own late-night talk show on U.S. network NBC - taking over the slot previously housed by Carson Daly.
Lilly, 30, announced her new gig during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday, March 14, telling the host, "I think it is a little awesome for an Indian-Canadian woman to have a late-night show. I'm super honoured and humbled."
It's thought Lilly will take over as host of what was previously known as "Last Call with Carson Daly", after the presenter stepped down last month following 17 seasons.
"A Little Late with Lilly Singh" is set to premiere in the fall and will include comedy segments and interviews with famous faces.
Speaking about the upcoming show, Lilly, who has 14 million subscribers on YouTube, joked, "(The show) will be kind of like my YouTube channel but now I have more than three staff members."
