Comedian and Ireland’s Got Talent judge Jason Byrne accidentally presses the golden buzzer by mistake on tonight’s show.

The singing act, whom Louis Walsh describes as “so bad”, already has three red buzzers from judges Louis Walsh, Michelle Visage and Denise Van Outen.

Van Outen then appears to tackle Byrne to get him to press the red button, but everything goes awry when Byrne’s foot landed on the golden one.

The judging panel appears entirely shocked.

“That is such a waste of a golden buzzer,” says Louis Walsh. “It’s just the singing was so bad.”

“I mean if Cilla Black heard that version, she’s spinning in the grave.”

“I think Jason’s in trouble,” added commentator Lucy Kennedy.
