Last night’s Late Late Show was some truly bizarre TV.
With Ireland in the throes of Storm Emma, the audience consisted of a handful of people huddled at the front of the studio, while interviewees included whichever RTE stars happened to be around and a couple who had just walked in off the street.
Marty Morrissey chatted to what seemed like every guest at a local wedding, and there was a segment on the famine.
Tubs completely winged it, at one point commenting: “Coming up after the break…I have no idea!”
It was a glorious mess, and the country was captivated.
Here are some of the best tweets from last night…
