She has just kickstarted the fifth series of her afternoon show with Daithi O'Se, but RTE host Maura Derrane has said that there is no certainty when it comes to her work.

Despite enjoying record viewing figures for the chat show last season, Maura (46) told the Herald that she is contracted to the show and otherwise has no other obligations with the State broadcaster.

"I am contracted to the show and I don't know how long it is going to last, that's the way it is," the mum-of-one said.

"We have got five years and it has gone well so there is no point speculating.

"We never really know until the summer time in terms of a new series.

"But if you worry year to year about contracts, I feel your performance is going to be affected."
