...home from LA, so I’ll be catching up with all my old friends, including the girls from our teenage band, Dolce Vita.

The photo of us (that’s me at the top) was taken 12 years ago when I was 16. Years later, we are all still great pals and stay in touch.

I love waking up in my own bed in Dublin and I look forward to my mum’s breakfasts with Superquinn sausages and Clonakilty white pudding.

I always go out for a walk on Howth pier where I used to rollerblade as a kid. Tonight we are singing at the Billie Barry 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Reunion Ball in the Mansion House, two old numbers that the late Billie would have loved, Moonlight Serenade and Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.

I never go through Dublin without calling into the Gaiety Theatre where I did pantos with Billie for years and I always go to Wagamama for a katsu curry.
