The O'Donovan brothers gained new fans following their appearance on the Grahan Norton Show on New Year's Eve.

The affable pair were their charming selves on the hit TV programme as they joined Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, James McAvoy and Frank Skinner on the coach.

And while they had viewers in stitches with their trademark honestly and wit, there was one particular moment that had people talking.

Comedian Frank Skinner regaled a tale of a time he crashed while rowing in a swimming pool that didn't seem to go down as well as he expected and was made worse when Gary sarcastically remarked: "Cool story bro."

This prompted Scottish actor McAvoy to jump to Skinner's defence and say: "Listen guys, try and be funny for your entire life and then give 'em shit."

Skinner, who was laughing quite awkwardly, responded: "I've been shot down by a rower."

Gary's jibe certainly went down well with social media users.
