They're the unlikeliest of duos, but who needs compatibility when it comes to fun in the sun for Linda Martin and Cormac Branagan.

The former Eurovision winner and star of TV3's 2012 series Tallafornia paired up to pose on the big red slide taking over Dublin's Christchurch.

As thousands of Dubliners made their way to the city centre set-up for a family fun day out, Martin and Brannigan were the first two there on Saturday morning.

But it was, as always, Martin who stole the show. The panto singer embraced her latest role with gusto - happily posing in an assortment of positions as she made her way down the 260ft two-lane inflatable slide.

On a more serious note, a health and safety officer, paramedics and lifeguard are all on scene if you're heading down to the Big Slide Home today and there's a "Snap a Soakie" photo station where you can collect a printed version of your image.
