A young audience member livened up last Saturday’s Winning Streak with a hilarious sign that propositioned presenter Marty Whelan.

The blaggard’s placard, which read ‘I’m Only Here to Shift Marty’, attracted much attention on Twitter after the show aired on RTE One.

The audience member was spotted several times throughout the show, and RTE’s audience were clearly enamoured by her wit.

Unfortunately, Marty was unable to take up the offer of the shift as he is happy married to his wife Maria with whom he has two grown up children.

The pair married in April 1985 and Marty admits she has “the biggest influence” on his life.

“We're in it for the long haul. And for me, it has always been 'It's okay,' And for her, you're right, she is not in control at all. And she is watching this career of mine spiral out of control from time to time. And yet there she is,” he said.
