The host of TV3's Seven O'Clock Show worked as an RTE broadcaster for several years before making the move to Ballymount, said that she still gets red in the face while chatting to the UTV host.

"Of course! If Pat Kenny says my name, I blush," she told the new issue of Woman's Way. "I am the least cool person in this business, especially if it’s a familiar face. We had Garda Brian in from Red Rock and I got really giggly and silly, and I was trying to be cool.”

The mother-of-two also divulged her unlikely celebrity crush - Piers Morgan, echoing Kim Cattrall's statements that she'd choose Jamie Dornan second over another unlikely candidate.

When asked who her "celebrity pass" would be, she responded: “Piers Morgan, is that dirty? It’s the banter. Jamie [Dornan] is the obvious, I’d go on one date.

"Piers, I’d go on holidays with, for a week to Lanzarote, I could see us having fun. I think he’s great fun, he’s intelligent, he’s full of scoop and I think he’s very attractive. It’s an interesting little combo.”
