Diana Bunici does long distance with Steve Garrigan for dream job with BBC

She and the Kodaline star have been dating for three years.


Diana Bunici has revealed that taking on a new role has made aspects of her personal life difficult.

She has been dating Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan for over three years and lived with him in London.

The presenter recently moved to Glasgow to pursue her dream job with the BBC.

“It’s always difficult to keep anything going when you’re living in different countries in terms of everything, even with family and friends, but when you care you go out of your way to make an effort as much as you can.”

Though rumours previously surfaced that the couple got engaged, Diana added that at the moment, her job is her priority.

“The focus is all on career right now and it’s all or nothing. I don’t like to think I’m getting old but I only have one shot so I’m not thinking of anything else other than career,” she told the Mirror.

She added that working in the BBC was a goal of hers and she felt she couldn’t refuse.

“It’s been a bit of a curve ball. I’m based in Glasgow and it’s my first time ever being up here and I absolutely love it. Scotland chose me. I applied for a job in the BBC – it’s been a dream of mine to work there ever since I knew what the BBC was – and when a position came up in Scotland I couldn’t really say no.

“I came to a whole new city yet again because I did it with London.

“I don’t know if it’s a brave move but any time you move to a new place it can be a bit daunting and a little bit lonely sometimes but I thrive off that.”

The author, who previously wrote non-fiction book The Pursuit of Happiness, is currently working on a novel and also aims to make documentaries.

“I have produced my own documentaries before but my aim is to do a Louis Theroux job for the BBC.”
