Members of the audience can be seen in the background wearing the t-shirts.

SUPPORTERS of Rory O'Neill, aka Panti Bliss, infiltrated the audience of a live RTE broadcast last night.

Viewers saw several members of the audience wearing the t-shirts emblazoned with 'Team Panti'.

The t-shirts are being sold in a number of shops around Dublin in support of drag artist.

All the proceeds are going towards BeLonG To Youth Services, which offers support to young LGBT people.

The country's most famous drag queen has become embroiled in a debate over the meaning of homophobia in recent weeks, since an appearance on the Saturday Night Show.

It is not known if producers of the show were aware of the T-Shirts before the broadcast.

Eagle eyed Twitter users quickly noticed the stunt.

Darren McMahon tweeted: "So far I've spotted around 12 #TeamPanti tees on the audience on tonight's #Primetime"

While Claire Murray said: "Just noticed that a sizeable portion of @RTE_PrimeTime audience are wearing #teampanti t-shirts :)"
