Comedian Oliver Callan has claimed victory in the ratings war battle between the various "Leaders" debates.

He has pointed out that his segment on the Late Late Show last Friday brought in 661,000 viewers - or 49.5pc audience share.

This compared with Claire Byrne's Live Leaders' Debate with 586,000 viewers and the Prime Time version with 622,000. The TV3 version brought in 427,000.

He nailed impersonations of a number of our top politicians on The Late Late Show on Friday night.

The Callan's Kicks star tackled Enda Kenna, Joan Burton and Gerry Adams and others in the skit which had audience and viewers in stitches.

Check out the full seven minutes, which is likely to go down as one of the best comedic segments in the history of the Late Late.
