Daithi O’ Se has opened up about his close relationship with co-presenter Maura Derrane.

The Today Show has aired for two years now and much of its success is to do with the duo’s dynamic on air, but it helps that the co-workers are friends off-air too.

Daithi revealed that he and Maura hang out regularly outside of the show.

Speaking exclusively to VIP, Daithi explained that the pair know each other well after working together for so long.

“After two years, we know each other well. We go to dinner together once a month, We go to dinner together once a month.

“I’ve probably gone out to dinner with Maura more times than with my wife Rita,” he joked.

Speaking about the success of the show, Daithi said: “There’s two of us in it, we’re on the same money and the more we get along the longer we’ll be here. It’s as simple as that. After two years we know each other well.

Daithi and his wife Rita have one son together, Micheal Og, who is now three!

The presenter revealed that things have changed since starting a family and how he balances work and home life.

“Going out and meeting the lads for a few pints is all but gone. I prefer to spend time at home with Micheal and Rita.

“I’m on the road a good bit, but there are days that work comes up that I don’t take. There’s not point in saving money for his college fund if 15 years passes by and I’ve missed him growing up. Family comes before career. You have to provide, but there is a cut-off point.”
