Daniel O'Donnell superfan Molly-Kate Sloyan has revealed she received a 'fierce slagging' from her friends over her meme-inspiring reaction to Mario Rosenstock posing as Daniel on the Late Late Show.

Ryan Tubridy introduced Rosenstock as O'Donnell on the Late Late Show Valentine's Special last week and Molly-Kate leapt from her seat in the audience with excitement.

However, when she realised it wasn't her idol, she was overcome with disappointment and could be seen frowning at the imposter.

She gathered herself together, however, when Rosenstock pulled her from her seat to dance with him.

Molly-Kate's hilarious reaction went viral and she says her friends had a good laugh at her expense.

Speaking to the Irish Daily Mail, she said, "I had no idea the cameras were on me during the Late Late Show and I've no filter on my face, all my friends know that, so afterwards they gave me a fierce slagging.

"I genuinely had no clue until after the show that I appeared on screen until we were out in Lillie's Bordello and people were saying they'd seen me."

Molly-Kate added that she's happy people got a laugh out of it and she's in flying form since O'Donnell recorded a video for her inviting her to join him at his sold out Killarney show in August.

"To make up for your disappointment of it not being the real me at the Late Late Show Valentine's Special last Friday night I'd like to extend an invitation to you and a guest to join us at one of our sold-out shows at the INEC in Killarney this August," said Daniel in the clip.

"I hope you'll be able to make it and if you do, I look forward to meeting you then."

Let's hope RTE are on hand to record Molly-Kate's reaction at meeting the man himself!
