Hands up: Eamonn Holmes filling in for Stephen Nolan on his radio show on Monday

The theme music was the same, the presenter had a north Belfast accent... but this wasn't Stephen Nolan on the Stephen Nolan Show.

And, if you hadn't been listening to last week's trailers on BBC Radio Ulster, it might have taken you a moment or two to figure out who the smooth-voiced 'stand-in' was.

Eamonn Holmes was certainly in no hurry to reveal the name behind the voice.
