It’s easy to see why

1. When you open up a show with Al Porter and Linda Martin belting out Dead Ringer For Love with a half cut crowd of Irish singles, you know you’re in for a good time

LOOK at this dad-dancing out in force.

Sure look, it was grand.

2. The audience were having the TIME OF THEIR LIVES

Yes, there were many, many, MANY ole ole ole chants.

Al Porter was handing out the zingers like there was no tomorrow.

How sexy does Ryan look tonight? It’s not the first time he’s had a rose on him.
Linda’s been doing panto longer than me, the only year she missed was when she was fighting in the GPO.
I walked in on Linda and saw the fully fanny. I couldn’t help but think, Why Me?
You left me waiting, I’d be quicker getting a hospital bed.

Then he tried to smooch Ryan, who was having NONE of it.

4. Deano returned

He was full of insights and love advice.

The nation wants to know. Did I get the ride? And I did.

Hes still single, though.

6. Roisin was the true winner of Blind Date

While she wasn’t eventually picked by Aaron, Róisín wore a pink dress and pink wellies in the hopes of finding her one true love.

She’s a farmers daughter, with an interest in farming, and managed to shoehorn farming into every response she gave.

OK WE GET IT, SHE LIKES FARMING.

He picked the middle one, Sophie, in case you’re wondering (you so were).

7. Speaking of Blind Date, the lad looking for love was called Aaron Valentine

AND he has a tattoo of Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima on his arm.

They sang Tequila and the Hucklebuck and to be fair, the crowd were mad for it.

Must be all that Buckfast.

8. Things got a bit I’m A Celeb

Two unsuspecting members of the audience were plucked from the wilderness and asked to guess things about the other person.

If they didn’t get it right, they had to eat an assortment of gross things.

Perhaps the best moment was when they were asked what they had rated each other backstage. Declan gave Siobhan an eight, but she only gave him a four.

HEARTBREAKING.

It’s OK Deco, we love you.

9. Dickie Rock had to show up, of course

What did he sing? That’s Amore. What else?

Oh, to be sixty again.

But hold on…

10. The audience were given a massive supply of johnnies

Cover your eyes, granny!

11. Ryan said the words Dick Pic

And we will never be the same again.

Maybe he just meant this?:

12. And finally, a woman from Mayo won the competition to stay in a hotel in Mayo
