Jamie Dornan and Matthew Rhys' Celtic Challenge is a joy to behold

Get these two in a buddy cop movie.

JAMIE DORNAN IS busy promoting Death and Nightingales, so we’re busy absorbing every bit of publicity he does.

Hey, it’s vital to our society that we bring you the news. 

BBC Two were kind enough to pit him and his co-star Matthew Rhys against each other in a Celtic battle and it’s the only interview you really need to catch. Who reigns supreme? Northern Ireland, or Wales? 


They were asked to pit each country against each other in a variety of topics.

First up was singers. Who has the best? 

Matthew had Tom Jones, Cerys Matthews , Kelly Jones and er, Aled Jones. 

Dornan on the other hand, had Tim Wheeler from Ash to offer, as well as Gary Lightbody and Van The Man, of course. 


Jamie knows what’s up.

It wasn’t long before conversation turned to potatoes. When asked to put food against each other, it was the obvious carb. 


“It’s amazing what we’ve been able to conjure up with said peasant food” said Dornan. 

The amount of potato formats that we’ve mustered in Ireland. There’s champ, and mash, baked potato, boiled potatoes, chips. 

Not doing anything for the stereotypes here, man. 


Yes, those are potato emojis. 

When it came to picking the best landscape, Northern Ireland obviously won, with Jamie getting a few digs in at Matthew at the same time. 

As a result, they had a thumb war and it all went downhill from there. 


Watch to the end for Dornan’s Messy Champ recipe.
