Síle Seoige confessed live on air this morning that she desperately needs to get the roots of her hair done.

And an attempt by the broadcaster to improve them before she went on Ireland AM this morning failed when her roots spray can ran out at the last minute.

“This ran out as I was going on air, my little roots spray ran out, I am quite grey,” she giggled, as she pointed at her spray can while talking to presenters Laura Woods and Alan Hughes on Virgin Media One.

“I am booked in for next Thursday (at the hairdressers). I cannot wait. I know they are up the walls, and they are playing a blinder, salons across the country, but I just cannot wait to sit in that chair and be plastered in colour and get the gruaig cut, it will be blissful.”

Asked what else she is looking forward to, she replies: “Hug my parents, give them a massive squeeze.

“I saw them at Christmas but it wasn’t the same, we were very careful because obviously they hadn’t been vaccinated.

“So to give my dad a proper squeeze and my mum will be amazing.

“And a dip in the Atlantic. I’m missing home. I’m missing being able to give someone a hug and a squeeze. Thank God for science, as my parents are vaccinated now, it will be brilliant.”

Síle, who has overcome cancer and miscarriage, earlier spoke of the important of mental health and warned of the perils of social media, where she pleaded to people to try and stop looking for perfection and not use filters on pictures.

The 42-year-old has a young son, Cathal, with her partner Damian O’Farrell.

She says that the pandemic has taught us to talk more to each other

“We realise unfortunately, and it sounds dramatic, that it is a case of life or death for a lot of people right now,” she says.

“A lot of people are suffering to an extreme extent, so it’s not the case that it’s affecting just a certain percentage of the population, it's all of us, even those with the most robust mental health, we are all feeling this.

“For those who have suffered from anxiety, depression, or anything mental health related, that has all been exacerbated during this time. We need to look out for each other. We are at crisis point and it can’t be ignored.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel though.”

The star, who now practices yoga and teaches mindfulness and wellbeing, was promoting a free counselling and psychology event on Friday, which will be MC’d by Blindboy from 10am until 3.30pm and can be accessed on Eventbright.
