Armed with two trusty air fryers and a store cupboard that includes everything from instant mash to cheese singles, Karol and Gina Daly might seem unlikely food stars - but their The Daly Dish and Mr Dish Instagram accounts has earned the husband and wife almost 120,000 followers.

From their semi-D kitchen in Longwood, Co Meath, 40-year-old Karol and 39-year-old Gina Daly, who have been married for 12 years, have attracted their online following by reinterpreting so-called 'bold food' and making them less naughty.

It started in 2018 when a frustrated Gina started posting recipes and photographs on Instagram in a bid to keep tabs on what she was eating. Having previously lost eight stone, the mum of two put half of it back on after a fun holiday in America in 2015.
