An Irish comedian has shared perhaps the best celebrity photo ever

Just sitting next to Paloma Faith on the train. No biggie.


You’re sitting on the bus when you look over your shoulder and who’s sitting there, but a pop star.

Irish comedian Shane Langan — you might know him from the RTÉ/BBC sitcom The Walshes and his work with comedy act Diet of Worms — has shared this rather excellent photo of himself of himself sitting on the Tube next to none other than… Paloma Faith.

Langan tells DailyEdge.ie that the photo was taken about five years ago and that he didn’t even realise he was sitting next to the singer until his sister showed him the photograph she had surreptitiously taken.

As James Vincent McMorrow put it, “flipping magical”.
