LAID BACK: Newsreader Susan Jackson during bulletin

NEWSREADER Susan Jackson "looked super" while delivering the headlines on Morning Ireland in a hoodie and Superman T-shirt.

RTE gave Susan its blessing for her casual attire while reading the news on the flagship programme, which was relayed live on their webcam yesterday.

Blazers, suits and smart shirts is the normal dress code.

"Wardrobe and style considerations are primarily relevant to TV; webcam radio broadcasts are much more informal and in fact it is this informality that is part of the 'sneak-peek' attraction.

"Presenters in webcam studios may dress casually. We think Susan looked super," RTE said.

Jackson, who is married to Cracker actor Lorcan Cranitch, seemed to be embracing 'dress down Friday'.

However a station insider said that reaction to her appearance could lead to RTE bringing in a dress code for radio staff.
