2FM's Eoghan McDermott was treated to a birthday surprise when his model girlfriend presented with him a cake - while he was live on air.

The presenter celebrated his 32nd birthday in RTE's radio studio on Wednesday, where he was surprised by Assets model Jo Archbold and a crowd of the station's employees.

After his initial shock, The Voice of Ireland host thanked his "awesome" girlfriend.

After discovering his reaction was being caught on camera by RTE, Eoghan said: "I'm being videoed - it's all a bit creepy but it's awesome."

Some of Eoghan's famous friends took to Twitter to wish him a happy birthday.

Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan joked that the presenter was getting old, saying "happy birthday man, I know good old folks home if you need a recommendation". Model Thalia Heffernan also tweeted her birthday wishes, writing, "happy belated birthday Mr McDermott (still have a few moves in you...?)".

Showing he's a good sport, the popular presenter replied, "Great to be another year closer to dribbling on myself whilst I try sip blended watermelon".
