WE’VE ALL GONE to great lengths to get a birthday shout-out from our favourite celeb before, no doubt.

I have spent many an August 8th (jot it down just in case you forget) furiously tweeting the members of Fall Out Boy politely informing them about my birthday in the hopes that they might absentmindedly type “happy birthday Fionnuala!” in response.

Anyway, Annie happened to be a lot luckier (or unluckier depending on what way you look at it), when she found herself on the same flight as Daniel O’Donnell.
