It's not every day that you get to kiss one of the biggest television stars in Ireland, but Eoghan McDermott knows a good opportunity when he sees one. The up and coming broadcaster managed to shock the unshakable Kathryn Thomas live on air as he dramatically dipped her and took the chance to play the joker by giving her a huge kiss.

During last night's final of The Voice of Ireland, the hosts had choreographed a fun routine to Dirty Dancing's Time of My Life, and a visibly stunned Kathryn was left gob smacked when her co-host planted a smooch.

And, as usual, she was the consummate professional and continued on her presenting duties as normal, despite the impromptu kiss. Show bosses pulled out all the stops for a final to remember last night, and Kathryn clearly got caught up in the excitement

During Shane McLoughlin's performance of The Walls' Brewing up a Storm, the Carlow presenter made her way on-stage to dance and couldn't help but laugh hysterically afterwards at her own spontaneity. Bressie even joked that she gave him the best entertainment he's had all year with her unforgettable moves - which included The Monkee.

Meanwhile, Cork teenager Keith Hanley, who was mentored by Jamelia, was crowned the lucky winner last night.

The 19-year-old from Charleville said he was shocked when they announced his name. "I was in a daze, I was so shocked. Obviously, Kelly was the favourite and delivered an incredible vocal/ So when they read my name, I couldn't believe it."
