"Who on Earth is that?" ... Turns out, Noel Gallagher isn't particularly familiar with RTÉ's star names

Brendan O’Connor asked the Oasis star if he’d stick around to meet Kathryn Thomas, and got a pretty standard Noel response.

Brendan O’Connor will only mortify you in front of them.

While introducing TV presenter Kathryn Thomas on the Saturday Night Show last night, O’Connor asked the star guest Noel Gallagher to stick around for a chat.

Noel’s response inadvertently summed up the state of Irish chat shows as a whole:

We know, we know… There was very little chance that Noel Gallagher would ever have realised that Kathryn is one of Ireland’s foremost TV presenters. But still:

As a massive Gallagher fan, Kathryn herself took it all quite well, asking Brendan why he went and threw her under the bus:

I can’t believe it! I was trying to be all cool in front of him and you just made a show of me there!
