She hasn't done bad for a young wan from Bray, has she? Two weeks ago, Laura Whitmore was the host at the MTV Best World Stage in London. I was in the audience to watch her introduce another Irish export that has done quite well internationally - U2 at Trafalgar Square.

"They are the greatest live band in the world," she told me after the show. "To see them play such an iconic location was magical and as a fellow Irishman, announcing them on stage as global icons is a moment I'll remember forever."

The Bray Wanderer then jetted off to Hong Kong. She is jetting back to London this week to launch something very special - and very important - for World Aids Day for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation.
