Blathnaid shakes off 'bullying' woe to cheer Beyonce

The Diary sees RTE star Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh is back on the social scene again after what seems like a lengthy absence.

The flame-haired mum of four, who is back on our small screens as one of the judges in the All Ireland Talent Show, was spotted shaking her stuff to Beyonce at the O2 Dublin earlier this week.

Blathnaid was with her other half and her children.

Things now appear to be back to normal for the TV personality in the wake of bullying allegations made against her by her former Afternoon Show colleague Sheana Keane.

She revealed this week how she and her ex co-presenter have not spoken to each other in seven months, since the claims first emerged, and how they were never good friends.

"I think people thought because we were two women, we were pally. That persona was kind of forced as well because you're on TV. You were forcing the chemistry," she said.

"Sheana left in March and I understood that she had vertigo. I haven't seen her in seven months. We weren't the best of mates -- we worked together."

She continued: "To be labelled a bully was mortifying. I read a lot of lies in those weeks."

She's now back on RTE mentoring the hopefuls in the talent search competition.
