MANILA, Philippines -- Actor-comedian Vhong Navarro never expected that he would be given a chance to host a noontime show.

In an interview with Boy Abunda on "Bandila," Navarro, one of co-hosts of ABS-CBN's newest noontime show "It's Showtime," said his only dream was to become a dancer.

"Napaka-sarap po kung nasaan ako ngayon kung ano ang kinalalagyan ko. Kasi lumagpas po siya sa pangarap ko na isang dancer po," Navarro said.

"(Tapos) magiging host ng isang noontime show, yun ang hindi ko po inisip. At yung magpatawa, hindi ko din akalain na aabot ako doon."

Navarro said he wasn't even aware that he's good in comedy until film director Chito Roño told him that he's the clown of his dance group "Street Boys."

Currently, Navarro is gearing for "It's Showtime" with Billy Crawford, Nikki Gil, Kim Atienza, Vice Ganda and Anne Curtis, among others.

"It's Showtime" will premire this Monday, February 6, 2012.
