He’s a very talented man who doesn’t need such twisted scripts,’ Eamonn says.‘I was flying more often than pilots,’ he explains.
We were together for a long time and I did start to wonder if I’d ever get pregnant.You can’t keep launching people through The X Factor or Big Brother. 'Sometimes I’d genuinely like to have enough money so that I could get on with watching a lot of sport and having time to visit people.But that can seem like the only route into TV these days.’ The couple are aware they’re already among the oldest presenters on TV. While presenting the event for many hours on Sky News, he warned the public not to attend because of the miserable weather. 'So you have presenters saying, “The atmosphere here’s fantastic.” It wasn’t. Should I have said, “Come to the Thames to get pneumonia?” We saw what happened with Prince Philip after all,’ he argues.
