Healy said she was “overwhelmed” by all of the stories and it was tough choosing between such worthy contenders. Healy said “I’d love to give everyone who entered an award. It’s such an honour to be host and a part of this. I’ve attended the Pride of Britain three times with the girls so I know what it’s all about. I think it’s amazing that it has come to Ireland.” Despite this, Healy began writing her solo debut album.
