While those inside appeared to have a great time listening to the likes of Graham Norton, Laura Whitmore and (ahem) Nigel Farage, there were some who never made it in at all.

People have been posting on social media citing an ‘overbooking’ which left a large proportion of the crowd standing outside.

Regarding the issues, a spokesperson for RTÉ said: “Audience tickets for The Late Late Show in London were allocated and managed by UK based company Applause Store. Applause Store are ticket specialists for UK TV audiences.

“Tickets were allocated to applicants stating that it was not a guarantee of entry but seats would be allocated on the night on a first come first served basis.

“This is standard in UK TV audience management. However such was the demand for this one off show that more people were left disappointed than expected which is of course regrettable.”

We wonder what passing Londoners thought of all the madness.
