Speaking about his departure from the show, Ivan said: “Since 2017 I've learned so much about live TV, I’ve really enjoyed working with Matt Cooper and the entire production team who are excellent at what they do. I want to thank Virgin Media management for their support.

“I think the programme gave deeper insights from Brexit to the elections to Covid and sometimes an alternative view. We embraced controversy and craic at the same time. I hope we gave viewers a level of analysis that was both entertaining and informative. I’m delighted for the station that it was such a ratings success.”
