She lost her husband Angelo five years ago in a tragic accident.

And lots of crying would be great. If this documentary is a success, she could go on to present BBC Newsline or a Panorama. After that, who knows…Dancing On Ice? But first, she needs some drama, even if she has to create some herself. This episode stars Diona Doherty, Paddy McDonnell, Tracey Lynch, Lucy McConnell and Frazer Robb.
