Ray D'Arcy gave Derry Girls' Nicola Coughlan a Den t-shirt for a drawing she did when she was 8

Practically an artifact.

DERRY GIRLS CREATOR Lisa McGee and the show’s stars – Jamie , Monica-Saoirse Jackson, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie Lee O’Donnell and Siobhan McSweeney – joined Ray D’Arcy on his show last night.

Saoirse-Monica gave him a rundown on Derry slang, such as “shite the tights”. Handy one to have in the arsenal now.

Lisa said she couldn’t get over being named one of Britain’s most powerful people in television – (“I don’t feel very powerful!”) but said she was happy with how the show has gone down in Northern Ireland.

Nicola – a Galway native – explained how she managed to nail that Derry accent by watching videos of Nadine Coyle’s infamous appearance on Popstars.

Talk about doing your homework.

Before that though, she was desperate to get something else off her chest. It turns out 8 year-old Nicola put together an incredible piece of art for Ray during his time presenting The Den with Zig Zag. However, she forgot to post it to him in the end, and decided to present it to him that evening.

(Please note the interactive features which Nicola worked painstakingly on.)

Just as well she brought it, because Ray had a Den t-shirt waiting for her in his trusty set of drawers.

Nicola started tearing up, insisting: “It’s fine. I’m just really excited.” Bless.
