Ray D'Arcy may just be the bravest man in Ireland.

The RTE star has agreed to let his eight-year-old daughter dress him for one week for a new on-air social experiment.

After American woman Summer Bellessa from Arizona hit headlines when she agreed to let her toddler dress for a week, Ray is following suit by representing the Irish side, and it looks like he's off to a stylish start.

RTE Radio One posted the snap on their Twitter account, writing: "Mr. D'Arcy was dressed by his 8 yr old daughter &will be for the week...is she a stylist in the making? #raydarcyshow"

After 14 years at Today FM, Ray shocked listeners when he announced his return to the state broadcaster in December of last year.
