I remember that Gay Byrne hosted The Late Late Show when Boyzone made their first tv appearance in the 1990s. It was memorable as it was cringeworthy in the extreme and Gay seemed quite bemused by the boy band. It is on yt and worth watching if you've not seen it. RIP.

He also worked on Granada’s local programmes Scene at 6.30 and People and Places in the early 60s, corralling that great interview between Ken Dodd and The Beatles.

End of an era, always came across as a charming man and obviously well loved.
