Would you like the President to serve you tea?
The first episode of Gogglebox Ireland introduced us to retirees Angela and Eileen and their knitted tea cosy.
As the ladies discussed everything from how well Sharon Ni Bheloin looked ("She looks well, she looks very well"), to the "18 bongs" of the Angelus and their concerns over the autonomous car's ability to get them to Lidl to "buy bogroll", viewers were distracted by their Michael 'Tea' Higgins tea cosy.
They took to Twitter in their droves to query where they could purchase their very own presidential tea cosy.

Sorry but the star of the show has to be Michael Tea Higgins! #GoggleboxIRL— The Corpse Bride (@noelle_kelly) September 22, 2016
The tea cosy was made by Eileen's daughter Yvonne and you can find her here on Facebook. She told Independent.ie that she makes them "as a hobby" and it's not an official business.
"There's an awful lot of interest in this wee man," she said.
Etsy designer Rosiecosie also sold similar tea cosies but they have unfortunately sold out.
