FINE Gael local election candidate Jennifer Carroll MacNeill was thrilled to get the backing of celebrity bed salesman 'Mattress Mick'.

The memory-foam king posted on Twitter about how he met the Killiney-Shankill hopeful and said he was "very impressed with her energy and determination".

Ms MacNeill - a former adviser to Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy - reacted with delight.

"I've just been endorsed by actual Mattress Mick. I have to lie down. On a mattress."

She told Mick the "feeling is mutual", adding a smiley emoji with love hearts.
