Head­ing north west? For lunch, or a re­ally swell af­ter­noon tea, head to The Vil­lage Tea­rooms in pretty Drom­a­hair, Co Leitrim. Here, you can in­dulge in de­lights in­clud­ing crois­sants, quiches, choco­late eclairs and hum­ming­bird cakes, to the gen­tle rus­tle of Ja­panese lanterns over­look­ing the River Bonet.

What is your han­gover cure?

Nando’s — de­liv­ered to the front door.

What do you drink? Are you care­ful about what you eat?

I go through phases, but to be hon­est, I like to cook some­thing that’s quick, and that you can do eas­ily, with healthy op­tions — such as a piece of salmon and roasted toma­toes with baby pota­toes. It takes 20 min­utes, max.

Are there any foods you have had to cut out or cut down on that you miss?

You do miss lit­tle things, liv­ing in an­other coun­try. An English break­fast is not the same as a full-Ir­ish break­fast. They also don’t have proper brown bread like you get at home.

What’s your per­fect fam­ily meal?

Christ­mas Day. I’ve worked al­most ev­ery Christ­mas Day in Lon­don at Sky Sports News since I moved six years ago, so hope­fully this year I will be at home, hav­ing Christ­mas din­ner with the fam­ily.

Spaghetti bolog­nese — you can’t go wrong. A glass of Whis­per­ing An­gel rose wine. I’ve en­joyed Xico the last few times I was in Dublin. The food is great, as is the at­mos­phere. Sar­dines. An Asian beef dish my mum taught me to cook.
