Weatherman and TV presenter Barra Best loves his job. As well as bringing the latest weather reports into our homes, over the years he has also taken us out and about to discover hidden gems and little known places and characters in programmes such as Walk the Line, Coast Lives and last year's Barra on the Bann.

"I really do love my job," he says. "I'm passionate about the weather and I love the variety getting out and about making TV programmes gives me, but if I had to pick my ultimate dream job, it would be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest.

"I'm a huge, huge fan. I grew up with it," adds the 38-year-old.
