Romeo and Mount Juliet for TV host Lisa Can­non

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

Ever since she did Xpose on TV3, I’ve al­ways thought Lisa Can­non was a fash­ion­able bird. Be that as it may, she is go­ing all out to avoid cook­ing an­other fash­ion­able — and well-dressed — bird this Christmas.

Lisa, who hosts the film show Box Of­fice on Vir­gin Me­dia, is, she tells me go­ing to “Mount Juliet with my hus­band Richard and fa­ther Michael, so I can en­joy the fes­tiv­i­ties with­out the cook­ing! We have been to many places over the years, The K Club, Clar­idge’s, The Shel­bourne, The Dorch­ester in Lon­don and Pow­er­scourt, but Richard and I have been in Mount Juliet twice be­fore. This is our third Christmas there,” Lisa, do­ing the maths, gushed (does she ever do any­thing else?) be­fore adding: “I’m head­ing to New York first week in Jan­uary.” To get out of cook­ing din­ner?

Jok­ing aside, our Lisa re­cently did win the IARA Award in Lon­don at the Hil­ton Ho­tel. “It’s an In­ter­na­tional Award of Recog­ni­tion of the Arts. So it’s for all my work, both in the UK with Cher and host­ing at the Bri­tish Film In­sti­tute, Box Of­fice, on Vir­gin Me­dia TV. I beat stiff com­pe­ti­tion from the BBC and ITV hosts.” So, she has earned her tur­key in Mount Juliet Es­tate in Kilkenny.

Richard and Lisa — Romeo and (Mount) Juliet?
