... And Brian steps into her shoes at RTE

Brian Ormond is set to step into Aoibhinn's shoes and present this year's St Patrick's Day TV highlights.

RTE were left scrambling to find a replacement when she pulled out of her hosting duties at the last minute.

Filming on the programme is due to begin in the coming days, leaving TV bosses searching for another established name to take on the job. A spokesperson confirmed that Ice presenter Brian will take to the small screen to host the show next week.

Aoibhinn, the face of this year's Seachtain na Gaeilge, described just last week how she was "really excited" about landing the coveted TV job but will instead now travel to Washington alongside other half, RTE star Ryan Tubridy.
