The RTE star, who will tomorrow once again take to the couch for her Saturday night summer chat show, takes us beyond the hall door, and into her hallway and living room.

Miriam shows us her signed copy of Seamus Heaney’s poem Scaffolding, which the Nobel Laureate himself dedicated to herself and her husband Steve.

Viewers also get a sneak peak of her piano, which she plays herself, and her library of books which includes political titles on figures like Tony Blair.

Perhaps most lovely of all, the mum-of-eight has a photo of a family member's graduation proudly placed on her piano.

Here are a few things you might not know about the nation's favourite household name:

What is the question you get asked the most?

“What’s it like having eight kids… I say it’s great”

What poem hangs in your hallway?

“It’s very special. It’s the poem Scaffolding that Seamus Heaney sent me as a present after I interviewed him.”

What is your favourite piece of clothing?

Black skinny jeans

What is your best beauty tool?

A good blowdry

What might people not know about you?

I play the piano, my party piece is Skibbereen

Who would play you in a film about your life?

Tomorrow night, Miriam will interview Louth teenager Jamie Monaghan and his Dad Philip who accepted the prestigious ‘Medaille de la Ville de Paris’ award on behalf of the Ireland fans at a special mayoral reception in France after the Euros.  

RTÉ newsreader Una O’Hagan and husband Colm Keane will also join Miriam on the couch to discuss their new book ‘Animal Crackers’, and they will share their story about the tragic death of their only son, Sean in 2007.

Country music stars Philomena Begley and Cliona Hagan will perform a duet ‘Queen of The Silver Dollar’, and 'Riverdance' will also give an exclusive performance.

Saturday Night with Miriam, airs tomorrow, July 9th, on RTÉ One at 9.45pm.
