He said he'd have his first pint of Guinness tonight. Well it seems former Friends star Matt Le Blanc has gone one step further.

The actor, who is in Kerry filming an episode for BBC's Top Gear, pulled his very own pint as well.

Matt was photographed behind the bar of Florry Batt's bar in Kenmare, and he looked more than pleased.

The actor also found some time to surprise a hen party.

One lucky Irish woman got a special surprise yesterday when her hen party was gate-crashed by TV star Matt LeBlanc.

He was spotted earlier in the day around Killarney and kindly posed for some selfies with local fans (and TV presenter Kathryn Thomas), and later found some time to surprise a hen party in Kenmare.

The group were kitted out in novelty police gear to celebrate bride-to-be Sarah Jayne Murphy’s big day, and were driving through the town when the actor rolled up behind them.

One of the hens, Lisa Marie Keane, shared her delighted snap on Twitter, writing: “Thanks for making our hen’s day!!! #kenmare #topgear”.

LeBlanc will be joined by his new co-host Chris Evans today as they begin shooting their first instalment of the hugely popular BBC show.
