Last week, veteran broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan stepped into Ryan Tubridy’s shoes and presented The Late Late Show.

Ryan was unable to present the show due to illness, and has also missed a number of his radio shows on RTE Radio One.

Miriam was the very first female presenter of the iconic Irish talkshow.

When asked what it was like to be the first woman to present the show in it’s 58 year run, Miriam said:

“It feels great – another glass ceiling smashed.”
