Diana describes her childhood move to Ireland in new novel

LEADING children's presenter Diana Buccini is putting writing skills from a journalism degree to good use as she pens a book about her move from Moldova to Ireland as a young child.

The Elev8 presenter is now several months into writing the semi-autobiographical book.

Although based on a fictional character, the book is loosely based on Diana's own experiences and will explore the highs and lows of the move.

"Moving to Ireland when I was eight was a defining moment for me. It was great to put pen to paper and to talk about my native roots which are very important to me," Diana told The Diary.
