London, May 30 : Still recovering from her 8-year kidnap ordeal, Austrian 'dungeon girl' Natascha Kampusch is now set to appear as a TV chat show host.

The 20-year-old, who was kept as a sex slave in a cellar for eight years, will be seen interviewing local Austrian celebrities in the series starting off this Sunday.

Ex-Formula One champ Niki Lauda would be her first guest on the show.

After the interview, the 59-year-old F1 legend had all praises for Natascha.

"She was very professional, and asked me questions no one's ever asked me before," The Sun quoted him as saying.

Kampusch has called her TV role a "challenge".

"As long as you keep overcoming, you keep developing," she added.

Kampusch was kidnapped at the age of 10 on 2 March 1998, and remained in custody of her kidnapper, Wolfgang Priklopil, 44 for more than eight years, until she escaped on 23 August 2006.
