Anne Gregg, one of the first TV personalities from Northern Ireland to make it big on national television, has died.

Among the shows she presented, was BBC One's Holiday programme. The travel writer, 66, died from cancer.

She returned to Northern Ireland in 1995 as part of the programme Places Apart, which she presented.

Gloria Hunniford worked with Anne at Ulster Television and said she had fond memories.

"I used to love it when I heard her doing reports about Northern Ireland and speaking so happily of it," she said.

"I think she was very proud of her roots.

"But probably the reason why we all haven't been so aware of late that she was ill - and I wasn't aware she was as ill as she obviously was - is I think she was one of those sophisticated but private people.

"She kept herself very much to herself to herself on a personal level."
