RYAN Tubridy’s on-off girlfriend Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin is following in her beau’s footsteps by taking to the airwaves.

The former Rose of Tralee will step into Miriam O’Callaghan’s shoes when she temporarily takes over her radio show on Sunday mornings on RTE 1.

The Mayo lass, who’s currently presenting the RTE travel series Getaways, starts her new gig next Sunday.

“I am excited about the programme and I’m really looking forward to working with the team,” she says. “I’ve grown up listening to Radio 1 and it’s wonderful to be given this opportunity.”
