It's the stuff of celeb nightmares - you arrive at a glitzy night club to make a VIP appearance but no one shows up.

Breakfast Republic host Jen Maguire was left red faced when less than five people turned up to a club opening in Limerick once but has since laughed the incident off. "I did a club appearance a couple of years ago down at a club in Limerick and I got a couple of hundred euro for doing it," she said.

"But it was kind of embarrassing because nobody turned up. I think there were five people on the dance floor.

"I was trying to earn my money by dancing like mad and going, 'Just stay, it's gonna be mad craic' to people but they didn't stay.

"They still paid me even though no one came."

While she may not be doing another club appearance any time soon, the RTE star is developing a spin-off sitcom based on Republic of Telly characters Bridget and Eamon.

"I'm excited because they are characters we've done for a couple of years and people love them," she said.
