I am a man, so hosting this event was absurd, claimed the memo. I can only presume the writer applies her strict views to others too, so Grainne Seoige will have received a note telling her she should have been at home baking instead of hosting this year's 'Up For The Match'.

Miriam O'Callaghan must have been told she does not have testicles and should not have given considerable profile to the 'Blue September' campaign on male cancer.
