Gorgi Coghlan has had an interesting career but the revelation that she was part of a Shania Twain Tribute show is perhaps her most startling admission.

The Project host, who was once a biology teacher, confessed to her stage show past during an interview on the You've Gotta Start Somewhere podcast. 

'I'm one of those people that one thing's just not enough. So I started the Australian Shania Twain Tribute Show,' she said.

The 41-year-old was a biology teacher at McKinnon Secondary College, Melbourne, while moonlighting as Shania Twain on the side.

'At one stage I was teaching full time and I was doing four gigs a week' the star, who was then known as Gorgi Rendell, said. 

Even her students got involved, the host said, revealing: 'Some of my Year 11 and 12s who were professional dancers were my backup dancers.' 

And the TV star, who is best known for her work on the Today show and The Project, often took her act to the school assembly stage, too.  

A source tells Daily Mail Australia: 'Students remember her performing at assemblies occasionally. 

Like a woman! 'I'm one of those people that one thing's just not enough. So I started the Australian Shania Twain Tribute Show,' she said
