After the incredible summer The Magazine returns tonight and, even though it's Friday the 13th, we're delighted to be back. (Although everything's crossed!)
We've a star studded lineup too. Singer/songwriter Shane Filan talks frankly about life after Westlife and bankruptcy.
The high profile star lost millions in the Republic's property crash but thanks to the constant support of his wife Gillian and family he has bounced back with a fantastic new album "You and Me" due out on November 4th.
Tickets for his tour have only just gone on sale too.
When The Fall actor Jamie Dornan dropped in to see us on the Magazine in June he caused quite a stir around Havelock House but tonight it's the turn of his dad, Professor Jim Dornan proving Jamie really is a chip off the old block. I've just finished reading his fanstastic book "An Everyday Miracle" which looks back at his career delivering babies and caring for mums in the greater Belfast area over the past four decades.
It really is a fascinating and emotional read.
We also have the first in our #HeSaysSheSays series starring the daddy and mummy of daytime tv, Eamonn and Ruth. Let the bickering commence! We'd love you to join in the debate. Tonight they're talking gadgets and I can tell you the only thing they agree on is to disagree!
Also we've a very special delivery for local midwife, Helen Donaghy as we give her the shock of her life and present her with a People Like You award during her tea break at the Royal!
Oh it's good to be back!
