It’s Showtime welcomed the newest addition to the family and also celebrated the birthday of none other than Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
Catriona will be part of ABS-CBN’s noontime show for a week, and for her first day on set, she sung “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.
When the other hosts of the noontime show joined Catriona on stage, Miss Universe 2018 expressed her happiness to be part of It’s Showtime for the whole week.
Catriona said, “Sobrang excited to be here kasama kayong lahat, especially ito ang birthday ko. I’m so happy to be part of the Showtime family for my birthday week! It’s the best time to celebrate gusto ko talaga to be with you all for my birthday to be with madlang people to have super, super fun time this week.”
