Maggie from The Breakfast Show.

The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show's Maggie Doyle tells us a bit about herself...

I was born in the 'Sunny South East' of Ireland in a town called Wexford, whose big claim to fame is that the opening gory scenes of Saving Private Ryan were filmed on the local beach. I started reading 'the news' out loud aged 4, wearing Mammy's glasses and sitting at the kitchen table pretending I was looking down the camera. (There's no camera yet but there is a microphone!)

After a brief stint in the heady world of amateur dramatics, I gradually made my way to the bright lights of London, via many beer soaked student rugby days in Cardiff. Plunging myself into student debt I became a 'professional' and qualified as a Broadcast Journalist. I punted myself around a few different stations as a freelance news and travel reader before setting foot in One Golden Square and making myself indispensable to the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show.

In two years I have proved I make the best cup of tea, I can shout just as loud if not louder than Christian O'Connell, I make up my own travel terminology ("broken down" anywhere?), I love all things Irish and girly and have been known to leave boozed up voicemails!

My pink wellies are my ultimate accessory but I can really only get away with wearing them at the Isle of Wight Festival and for some reason, the sun usually shines there so they rarely get a look in!

Highlights and Lowlights of being on the best Breakfast Show on the airwaves;

You can guess which are the highs and lows there.

I like to sing, loudly, I crave hash browns every morning, I make the best cup of tea ever. Give me a glass of wine, the girls and a week of gossip to catch up and I am in my element. But also, give me the Breakfast team, a pub and a beer and it's just as good - but on a whole different level!
