2. But then he got in one little fight and his mam got scared so she said “You’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Kildare”

3. The fight would actually be over a particularly heated game of Kerbs and not basketball

4. Which meant that he moved to a mansion in the leafy K Club with his “Uncle Philo” and Viv

The Fresh Prince of Kildare was born.

It wouldn’t end well.

11. Will would play snooker in Dublin and get in a whole heap of trouble with some lads – but Uncle Philo would save the day

12. Geoffrey would be an au pair because posh English butlers in tuxedos really aren’t a thing here

13. Will’s childhood friend Jackie would come back into his life after getting a GAA scholarship at Maynooth

And she’d be played by Georgia Salpa.

14. Carlton would rent out the gaff for a Coronas music video when his parents are away

More smoke.

15. Ashley would have a one-hit wonder after appearing on The Voice of Ireland

16. And finally… the Carlton dance would always be accompanied by a Crystal Swing backing track

And they would guest star in multiple episodes – because they fit perfectly with the dance.
