Jane Downes from Clearview Coaching gave Nicky and Jenny tips about how to prevent getting bored at work:
But the highlight of today’s broadcast was Carl Mullangetting cupped! In cupping therapy, a therapist puts special cups on another person’s skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Louis Walsh, Westlife’s former manager, gave Nicky and Jenny a visit on today’s show and even got to play their X Factor Quiz to test his knowledge on the music competition show, ahead of the new season. Prize was a signed copy of Nicky’s debut album Sunlight!
Other guests on the show included Tanya Sweeney, who talked about online trolling, and Cormac Battle, who went to the streets asking people what they would do for love and if they could change your partner.
Food expert, Louise Lennox, took some delicious gifts with her into The Nicky Byrne Show’s studio. Nicky got to taste the delicious Stork Manbakes and there’s great footage of it too! 😉 It’s all about the Man Baking.
Cassie Stokes also spoke to Nicky about receiving homophobic hate mail. Sad to see what people are capable of – Everyone should feel free to love whoever they want without being judged for it. Listen back to the interview, here:
Nicky stopped by The Ray D’Arcy Show’s studio today to talk about his experience in Stockholm, representing Ireland at Eurovision. He also promoted his debut album ‘Sunlight’, and mentioned how radio stations have refused to play his music due to his job on RTÉ 2fm.
On today’s The Nicky Byrne Show, Jenny talked to Nicky on the phone about last night’s Eurovision 2nd Semi-Final results. Sad to hear Nicky so down about what happened, but I hope that he knows he didn’t let anyone down – on the contrary, he made us prouder than ever! We love you, Nicky!
Nicky also released the following official statement:
“Obviously I’m disappointed – I really would have loved to represent Ireland at the final on Saturday, but sometimes things just don’t work out the way you want them to. I went out there and gave it my absolute best shot. I’ve had such an amazing time in Stockholm and I’m so glad I had the honour of representing Ireland at Eurovision. I’ve had some brilliant experiences and met fantastic people so I’ll take those special memories with me. I have no regrets – life is short and it was an incredible opportunity to represent my country in front of a global audience. I would recommend it to any music act to take on the challenge next year – there is no bigger platform. Over 200 million people watch the Eurovision and with America broadcasting the for the first time this year and Justin Timberlake performing during the interval act it just goes to show how popular and loved it is. I want to thank Team Ireland – Ian, Jay, Janet, Jennifer and Johann for all their hard work. It was brilliant to have such a great team with me. Thanks and love to Georgina, the kids and my family, thanks to friends, colleagues,my management team Tim and Joanne, RTE and Universal for all the support in recent months. There are too many people to thank – you know who you are and I’m very grateful for all the support you’ve shown me. Thanks to all the fans and everyone around the world who voted. When I get home I’m looking forward to promoting the new album Sunlight. I’m so proud that I had the opportunity to fly the flag for Ireland at Eurovision 2016.”
