Sinead Kennedy: 'I worry about being labelled a kid's TV presenter'

Sinead Kennedy has admitted she worries about being labelled as a kid’s TV host forever.

The 31-year-old, who has gone from popular children’s TV presenter to co-host of Winning Streak with Marty Whelan, revealed she was looking forward to moving out of young people’s TV.

“You spend so long in young people’s TV working on youth shows and you think at the time, ‘Someone let me out so I can show that I can wear the guna and do the shiny floor telly’,” she said.

“Then you start doing that and you’re like, ‘But I’m not too old either, I can still do the younger stuff’.

“So you’re always trying to work between the two,” she added.
