Una Healy's emotional return to school

Irish singer Una Healy has taken a trip down memory lane by visiting her old school.

The Saturdays star returned to her alma mater in Thurles, County Tipperary to film a Christmas edition of TV show School Around The Corner.

She was greeted by dozens of excited pupils at Presentation Secondary School, where she hosted a question-and-answer session in the assembly hall and sat in on a home economics class.

Healy, who became a mother to daughter Aoife Belle in March (12), also met up with old school friends and her former teachers.

She says, "I haven't been here since 1994, it's a lifetime ago. I have tears in my eyes, I'm just so overwhelmed. A couple of my old teachers were there. It's just so nice that they all turned up."

The scenes were filmed for a special episode due to be aired in Ireland on Christmas Day (25Dec12).
