A young woman, who became an internet sensation after appearing as an audience member on the Late Late Show in 2016, has been jailed in relation to the discovery of "cocaine factory" in Cork.

Molly Kate Sloyan became a viral hit all over the country following her hilarious reaction to a Daniel O'Donnell impersonation in the 2016 Valentines Special. 

She literally lost her shit when Tubridy announced that O'Donnell would feature and the camera wasn't long spotting her.

However, her spirits were quickly dampened when the 'superfan' realised that it was in fact an impersonation by Mario Rosenstock and she was less than impressed.

We mean, if looks could kill...

The Irish Independent is now reporting that she has been jailed for seven years for her role in the 'high-tech' cocaine factory. 

The factory saw cocaine that was chemically implanted in clothing and fabric in South America which was then shipped to Ireland where it was then washed out of the fabric and recovered in a west Cork house.

The cocaine was found to have a street value of more than €51,000 and Sloyan's boyfriend was jailed for 12 years also.

The court heard that Sloyan was "fully involved in a material and significant level. She fully knew what was going on."

When arrested in December, Garda Shannon Ryan told Judge Mary Dorgan: “She organised flights and transport for herself and her co-accused to come to Ireland. She organised a house in Kinsale and a house in Bantry. She set up the extraction factory in Bantry and she ordered in Isopropanol."
