8 of the most mortifying moments from the Valentine's Day special of the Late Late Show

This was the strangest episode any of us have seen in a while.

1. The opening scene.

From the very beginning, RTÉ prepared us all for a night of cringing.


The audience were like children who had been given blue Smarties and a can of Coke before being told they could stay up late.


2. The countless number of times that the audience burst into song with “Olé! Olé! Olé! Olé!”

Even during a marriage proposal, for Christ’s sake.

3. When this contestant on Blind Date told a lad’s mother that she had loads of experience with ‘big rides’, because she used to work in a theme park.

Not to mention the fact that this guy’s mam had to come on and choose his date for him, because he was just a *little* bit drunk. He even managed to tell his mam to “f**k off” on live, national telly.

5. When the rambunctious audience took it way too far…

It was like they replaced the regular audience with 10 different stag groups.

6. When Carol Decker from T’Pau came to sing ‘China in Your Hand’.

The heckling did not stop for a second. Let’s hope she was paid well for this.

Let’s just be thankful this only happens once a year.
