An audience member got up in the middle of the Late Late to run to the jacks
Ah, live telly.

THE PERILS OF live TV were wonderfully summed up during a brief moment on last night’s Late Late show.

As Tubs was in the middle of letting us know what was coming up later in the show, he spotted an audience member shuffling out of her seat and into the aisle:

“Do you need to go to the loo? You do? Go on!”

spotted RTÉ RTÉ

The crowd roared – live TV was not stopping her


“If you gotta go”

A fine moment in the history of live Irish telly:

Some thought she might have had other motives

But let’s face it, this woman is all of us

Kudos to the nation’s new hero. Rebel.
