Louise Sullivan, who hosts Wednesday Lunch 12-2pm every week on Newtongrange-based radio station Black Diamond FM, interviewed the Kids TV favourites the day before her 39th birthday and the day of her daughter Teagan’s 11th birthday.

Just hours after speaking to Dick and Dom, Louise told the Advertiser: “I’m still a bit excited. I interviewed them this morning on Zoom. I’m going to put it on my show today.

“It was a nice birthday treat for my daughter and I. Teagan is a big fan of Dick and Dom.

“It went well. I was a bit nervous because they are such legends, but it was good.

“I only got 10 minutes to interview them because they are very busy. They said they would love to come back to Edinburgh to do the Fringe again.

“I asked them who their inspirations are, Dick said Phillip Schofield and Dom said Rik Mayall.”

Louise has been on Black Diamond FM since 2016, and has previously spoken to many famous people including Jon Campbell of TTF and comedian Jay Whittaker. Speaking about her latest scoop, she said: “They emailed the station to say we had been chosen. They were in high demand and said it might not happen, but they chose me so I was quite shocked. They are doing stuff for the website of sweetie brand MAOAM, funny bits and pieces, lots of jokes.

“They were great to talk to. I would say they were my favourite interview I’ve done.”
