Sharon Ní Bheoláin called Bryan Dobson ‘Dobbo’ live on air and Twitter was delighted

Sharon Ní Bheoláin has provided viewers with some great bloopers over the years - from ‘threatening’ her co-presenter Ray Kennedy to fighting a fly live on air - but on Friday night she gave the nation her best slip yet by casually addressing Brian Dobson as 'Dobbo'.

The normally-formal Six One News team were seen giggling in the studio after they screened a segment of The Late Late Toy Show.

Clearly caught up in the magic in one of the nation's favourite Christmas events, when the cameras returned back to the studio, the two news presenters appeared to stumble over their words.

Sharon is then clearly heard saying "No Dobbo, you go" as she passed the duty of delivering the news back to her co-presenter.

And, of course, viewers at home couldn't have been happier and the Internet exploded with tweets about 'Dobbogate'.
