NX FM's ultimate Mothers Day gift…a husband for mum.

Monday 12 May, 2003

Twenty nine year old single Newcastle mum Angela Doyle was nominated by her six year old son Liam to be 'The Mum' in NX FM's Who Wants to Marry My Mum competition.

The prize? A Husband for Mothers Day.

Newcastle radio station, NXFM ran the competition over the past four weeks and was swamped with hundreds of entries of eager bachelors keen to marry the NXFM Mum.

The interviews began and after extensive compatibility testing the choice was narrowed to three potential grooms:

Matthew Mason - a 34 year old Transport Manager and Truck Driver

“I was married once, before for 10 years and I have 3 kids. A friend nominated me for Marry My Mum and I decided to give it a go because Angela could be the one”

Rodney McGrath - a 32 year old Store Manager

“From what I heard on radio, Angela needs to meet a nice guy who wants to settle down and I am up to the challenge!!”

Stuart Shortland- a 25 year old Pharmacist

““I’ve never been married before and I don’t have kids. Marriage is great if it’s the right woman”

Angela (with Liam’s help), made the final choice at 8.25am on Friday morning at Crown Plaza Newcastle.

Liam boldly walked up to Rodney McGrath and asked him “Will You Marry My Mum?” to which Rodney replied “yes of course I will”.

To the strains of “A Beautiful Day” by U2, Liam walked Angela down the aisle where with Rodney they committed to each other in front of a certified Marriage celebrant.

Hundreds of spectators along with family and friends witnessed the event.Angela and Rodney were then whisked away to a luxury retreat for a special honeymoon.
