"My worst lie was my first to a woman. It still haunts me to this day.



"We were 17 and I'd snogged her for about five hours on the sofa, but the next day when we met up, I had this realisation that this wasn't such a good idea.

"I could sense she was keen so I suddenly came out with this amazing story.

"I have no idea where it came from. I told her I had a girlfriend in England and had just found out she was pregnant, and that I couldn't really have another relationship.

"In a couple of days, the whole school had heard. And, of course, it wasn't true. I was from Dublin and a virgin. So I had to come clean. I've never done it again."
