The return of one of the most popular shows on TV5, ‘Face to Face’ became one of the trending topics on social media in the past few days.
On May 1, the popular talk show would return with its new hosts Karla Estrada and Alex Calleja.
While many netizens were excited about the upcoming show, some of them were saddened that Amy Perez, the original host of the program would not return.
In an interview with Pep.ph, ‘Tyang Amy’ confirmed that she received an offer to host Face to Face again, but decided to refuse it because of some reasons.
According to her, she’s not planning to leave ABS-CBN yet.
“Hindi naman sa ayaw. Nakakahiya lang sa ABS-CBN kasi if aalis ako, kasi never naman ako nawalan ng show kahit nagkaroon ng pandemic at nawalan kami ng franchise.” Amy said.
“Hindi naman ako pinabayaan ng ABS-CBN kaya sobrang thankful ako sa kanila. Wala naman akong exclusive contract but I respect and value the fact na never akong nawalan ng show kaya super thankful ako.” she added.
She believed that it was already the right time to give chance to others to host the legendary talk show.
“And since nagawa ko na ang Face to Face, baka it’s time para iba naman ang gumawa at baka may offer sila na ibang flavor. Saka wala na rin si Hans. Baka hindi ko na makaya without him.” she stated.
Amy was referring to her former co-host Hans Mortel who passed away in 2021.
It can be recalled that some clips from Face to Face kept getting viral on social media, a testament that the show was still popular to the masses despite having no episodes for many years already.
