Happy New Year! Matt Terry and Anne-Marie were filling in for Capital FM morning hosts on New Year’s Day.

WATCH: Matt Terry Challenged Anne-Marie To Drink These Grim Health Shots But It Didn’t Go To Plan
Happy new year!

We get it. It’s New Year’s Day and all you want to do is start afresh, forget the past and kick on with 2018. Well, we’ve got a treat for you. The lovely Anne-Marie has took over the Breakfast show reigns proving that not only is she a kick-ass pop-star but also a shoe-in whenever we need cover for Ro & Vick.

Of course, we couldn’t leave Anne-Marie on her larry on New Year’s Day, so we invited Matt Terry into the studio to help A.M out on a little studio challenge.

The ‘Sucker For You’ singer brought our special host a couple of ‘health shots’ to get her ready for the new year… it turns out that one of them has an entire blended lemon in it. So the question is… who gets the gross shot and who gets the nice* one.

Louis Walsh on false allegations: ‘That was the worst thing that ever happened to me in my life’
Louis Walsh bares his soul to Barry Egan about how he thought he was finished when the totally false allegations were unfairly levelled at him by a tabloid newspaper in 2011

Was it hard to sleep during that whole time?

“I had problems. I had real problems,” Louis says.

HEALTH SCARE Five After Midnight’s Kieran Alleyne is diagnosed with potentially fatal heart condition after spending 14 hours in hospital
The singer left fans concerned when he revealed that he’d spent 14 hours in hospital having heart scans
X FACTOR star Kieran Alleyne has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition.

The 5 After Midnight singer, 22, sparked concern on Twitter on Friday after revealing he’d spent 14 hours in hospital having heart scans, and now The Sun Online can reveal that Kieran is suffering a condition called bradycardia which causes a slow and irregular heartbeat.

A source said: “He is suffering from migraine attacks, and found that he has an irregular heartbeat and bradycardia – he needs to take it easy for the time being and the hospital will continue to monitor his heart.”

While bradycardia sufferers can lead healthy lives, in severe cases when not enough blood is pumped to the heart to supply its needs, the condition can lead to fatal heart attacks.

The source added: “He’s comfortable and being looked after.”
