Bryan Dobson revealed what really goes on behind the scenes of the Six One News.

The broadcasting legend joined Breakfast Republic on RTE 2fm this morning and shared some interesting tidbits of information about himself.

Answering a series of random questions put to him by presenters Jennifer Zamprelli and Keith Walsh, the RTE stalwart revealed a side to himself that viewers don't normally see on the Six One News.

Here's what we learned about 'Dobbo'.

Does he wear trousers under the desk?

How does he take his tea?

"Drop of milk with no sugar. Medium [strength]."

Which famous person, alive or dead, would he love to have a cup of tea with?

Nelson Mandela.

What does he talk about with Sharon when the credits are rolling?

"I usually turn to Sharon and I say, 'Sharon, you were fantastic' and then she kind of pauses and then says, 'you know, Bryan, you were out of this world' and we sit there and massage each others egos... the sports guys run on the spot when the cameras are off them."

His favourite wine?
