Could there by anything worse.. than a Dubliner being forced to wear a Mayo jersey just two days before their All-Ireland clash replay?

Proud north-sider Martin King donned red and green in aid of Today FM's 'Dare to Care' campaign for the Irish Cancer Society - but it wasn't easy.

King presented the weather to thousands of people nationwide while wearing the Mayo jersey.

"I could feel my skin starting to itch after a while but I was doing it for the Irish Cancer Society’s ‘Dare to Care’ campaign which I was happy to support," he said.

He left no doubt as to where his loyalties lie, adding: "Come Saturday though I’ll be a true blue again! Come on the Dubs!”

And he left his fellow Dubs in stitches with his final quip: "Where's Lee Keegan? He likes pulling the shirts off Dubs and I need him now."

King's dare is one of many The Seven O’ Clock Show team are taking part in to help in raising much needed funds for cancer research.

On tomorrow night’s programme, Friday host Muireann O’Connell will have her make up done by former Republic of Ireland soccer International Paddy Mulligan while he sits on a bouncing ball, before she presents the live show.

He’ll also be choosing her outfit for the show.

Muireann's co-host for the show Ray Foley will be going through labour pains brought on by a pregnancy simulator while on TV.

Viewers wishing to show their support to the TV3 presenters in their ‘Dare to Care’ challenge can do so by simply texting the word ‘DARE’ to 50300. Texts cost €4. The Irish Cancer Society will receive a minimum of €3.25.
