Ladies night on The Magazine

Host Sarah Travers is joined by Co Tyrone singer Janet Devlin and Belfast mother Jai McConnell fresh from her experience of The Voice and chats to Limavady teen Rachael O'Connor as she prepares to sing for 'Team Kylie' this weekend.

Janet reveals all about her latest album 'Running With Scissors' and what's in store for the future, while Jai, who unfortunately lost her place in The Voice last week, will be explaining why she is feeling positive following her appearance on the reality show.And she might be getting ready to make her mentor Kylie Minogue proud on Saturday but Rachael O'Connor makes some time to chat to Sarah from London about what viewers can expect from her this week.The 16-year-old sent a video message about what she has been up to since she was put through to the live shows."I've been rehearsing since last week and I'm currently living in London, which is pretty good," she said."I'm missing family and friends at home, but I'm so busy every day. I'm in the studio from 9 in the morning until 9 or 10 at night."I'm living the dream at the minute and I'm loving every single second. Thank you to everyone back home, the support has been amazing."Also on the show this week Sarah chats to a couple who met through a remarkably similar experience of life on death row.Peter Pringle and Sunny Jacobs both faced the death penalty for completely separate crimes, one in Ireland and the other in the USA. Peter was accused of killing two officers of the Garda Síochána in Dublin in 1980 while Sunny was accused of killing two police officers in the state of Florida almost four years previously.In an extraordinary twist, both were eventually exonerated after spending over 15 years imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.Sunny and Peter first met in 1998 when Sunny travelled to Co Galway to talk of her experience on death row during an Amnesty International event Peter was also attending and in 2011 the couple decided to tie the knot with a ceremony in New York.Sunny and Peter are holding in Clonard Monastery on Friday night entitled 'Life After Death Row - A Story of Redemption' where they will share their inspiring story of endurance of the human spirit amid the most difficult circumstances and share their wisdom on reconciliation, healing, justice and forgiveness.The Magazine is broadcast on UTV on Friday from 8pm.You can follow The Magazine on Twitter @UTVMag
