Former IRA commander Martin McGuinness is to shake hands with the queen for peace today.

And after clashing swords with RTE's Miriam O'Callaghan during the presidential election, he will be her first guest on the new series of her TV show 'Saturday Night With Miriam'.

It will be the TV presenter and the deputy first minister of Northern Ireland's first interview since October 2011 when the broadcaster was at the centre of a storm over her questioning of the Derry man during a presidential debate. She quizzed him about his membership of the IRA and what he knew about the killing of Private Patrick Kelly in 1983.
