The Magazine returns for summer special

UTV's The Magazine returns this week for the first of three one hour summer specials, with host Sarah Travers.

In the first edition, Sarah will be catching up with MasterChef's John Torode, who was recently in Belfast for a food and drink event, and during their chat he admits to Sarah he was very much impressed with the city.

"It's an amazing city, I had no idea! It's beautiful," he said.

The celebrity chef is well known for not giving many interviews, so Sarah was one of a privileged few he has spoken to so candidly in the past.

"I think the thing about interviews is, they don't really put you across as the person you really are," he said.

"The fact is, what I do is, I cook and I love food and I love people. It's really hard to stand in front of somebody and explain what you do."

Also on the show, Sarah catches up with the Celtic Tenors who reveal what they have been getting up to in recent months and their plans for the future.

The Magazine will also be taking a look at the recent Maritime Festival in Derry~Londonderry, which welcomed the round the world Clipper Race, including the city's own Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew.

Meanwhile, Sarah will be hoping to get a few tips from a troupe of Flamenco dancers who recently visited The Magazine's rooftop studio.

Finally, Eamonn Holmes returns to his old work place and chats to Sarah about family holidays while he was growing up in Belfast, and the fond memories he has of his yearly visits to the Antrim coast.

"If you were from Belfast you were either a Down coast person or an Antrim coast person and we were Antrim coast people," he said.

"We would have our two week holiday in Cushendall and it was our everything.

"You know the way they say "we made our own entertainment", but we did because the adults, in those days, would just stop off at the nearest watering hole and we would be left to play in the car park or be inside pretending we were drinking beer with brown lemonade!"

The Magazine's first one hour summer special airs on UTV on Tuesday 29 July at 8pm.

Viewers can follow all the action from the show by tweeting along with @UTVMag using the hashtag #utvmag.
