RTE's Emma reveals summer wedding plans

RTE children's TV presenter Emma O'Driscoll has set the date for her wedding to teacher Liam Cronin.

The bubbly broadcaster, who shot to fame as a member of pop band Six in 2002, said the couple of over six years will tie the knot next June.

Emma (28) said she is keen to keep the exact date and venue for the wedding under wraps for the moment, but confirmed that they will wed in Ireland.

It is expected that the up and coming Montrose personality will choose a location close to her home place of Limerick for her big day.

"In the last two months or so I've really got into it and have been looking everywhere so we've settled on a date for next June," Emma told the Herald.

"We have chosen the venue but I'll keep that a secret now for another while. It is in Ireland, that's all I'll say for now.

"We're very excited about it. We literally only set the date and did all the deposits and that stuff last Saturday so it's really new and exciting. I haven't told everyone yet. I've only 10 months now to get everything sorted and find the dress but, you know, what a great positive thing to have to look forward to."

The happy couple got engaged last February during a romantic break in New York, with Liam proposing in the middle of Times Square.

The Hubble presenter explained how they took their time before making any wedding plans, with Emma admitting that she was keen to enjoy the engagement first.

The chatty blonde was celebrating last week when it was confirmed that she will be hosting new RTE teen talent series Sing this autumn.

The blonde beauty's own career took off after competing on RTE talent series Popstars and Emma admits she is looking forward to seeing other aspiring singers get their big break on the show.

Emma, revealed how she is also excited about working with her co-host Brian Ormond once more, after the pair first worked together on Ice several years ago.

"Myself and Brian would know each other well so we're both delighted about the new series," she explained. "It's going to be kind of a teen version of The Lyrics Board or Glee."
