She's starred in some of the most popular shows on television, but actress Pauline McLynn has admitted she always worries her acting days are numbered.

The Father Ted star (52) said that although she has had a hugely successful career on both the screen and the stage, she still frets about where her next acting job will come from.

"I always think every job is the last," the Eastenders star said. "I also think the day you think you know something is the day you should give it up, because you're cocky.

"I look back and I think that (her acting past) was all great, but I'm not getting any younger and I'm not sure I'm getting any better at anything.

"I think that's something as you get older, " the Sligo woman explained. "I think you just get fussier and nothing is good enough, and as a result you think 'I've lost it'.

The Irish actress was one of the first guests on comedian Neil Delamere's new 11am to 1pm slot on Today FM, while Paula MacSweeney also presented her new evening time show for the first time on the station yesterday.

Pauline also joined entertainers Mundy and Camille O'Sullivan yesterday to promote Yes Equality's Tea and Cake events for the forthcoming marriage referendum.

The initiative invites people to host their own 'Tea and Cake' get-togethers over the May Bank Holiday Weekend to discuss the vote.
