Former doyenne of the RTÉ newsroom Anne Doyle is the latest celebrity to back the 'Yes' campaign in the upcoming marriage referendum.

"Oh, I will absolutely be voting 'Yes' on the 22nd," Doyle said. "I really hope people come out and vote."

Recently cited as one of Ireland's leading gay icons in the 'Sunday Independent', Doyle occasionally "pops into" Dublin gay bar The George to play bingo.

The former news anchor also has ties to Ireland's drag community; her partner Dan McGrattan is the uncle of well-known drag performer Veda - who hosts a weekly entertainment night at The George titled 'Space N Veda'.
