Although I have been a guest on Loose Women many times, I am thrilled to be joining the Loose Woman panel one or two days a week.
Open House and Channel 5 ran daily in the afternoon until 2004, since then I’ve worked on various programmes like the OneShow, This Morning and Alan Titchmarsh. I present a number of leading series including the consumer programmes Rip Off Britain, Rip off Food, and Rip Off Holidays.

I’m best known for: Being on TV!
The proudest moment of my career is: I come from Northern Ireland but I’ve lived in Sevenoaks since the 1980s, having joined BBC Radio 2 as the first woman to have her own show. Through the programme 'Sunday Sunday' I have been lucky enough to interview many of the best of British and Hollywood names including Audrey Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas, Sean Connery, and Lionel Richie.
The best interviews I’ve done include Doris Day at home in California and getting past the Buckingham Palace gates to interview royalty!
My favourite lunch is: Wonderful Irish seafood outdoors by the beach
The most famous person in my phonebook is: Julio Iglesias and Neil Diamond.
The one thing I couldn’t live without is: Apart from my family are my portable tongs and fast-dry hairspray!!
