A Northern Ireland woman made her best friend's dream come true when she told her she bought tickets to see her hero: Oprah Winfrey.

Colleen Lynch (24) and Emma Moore (25) have been travelling around the world for the last three years. In that time, Colleen noticed that Emma has a strong love for one particular celebrity.

"Emma believes she is Oprah's number one fan," she said.

"She talks about Oprah every day, quoting her words and following her on every social media site. Anything Emma doesn't know about Oprah isn't worth knowing.

"She even has quotes from Oprah tattooed on her."

So when Emma found out that Ms Winfrey herself was coming to town, she had to go out and get tickets for her friend. As seen from the video above, Emma was absolutely over the moon with the present.

" I have never seen anyone so excited about anything in my life.

"Everyone who knows Emma knows it has been a life long dream to meet Oprah. More often that not in our travels, we have come to realise dreams do come true."
