By now I am sure some of you at least have seen last Monday night's 'Claire Byrne Live' on RTÉ One.

But before we go any further I have to declare an interest. Is this the first time ever a TV contributor critiqued a show he appeared in himself?

Guess what part I played on the set of 'Fair City'. I was barman. It was a classic case of art imitating life. John B's was always more of a stage than a bar. Life is a soap anyway and us bar staff are the actors.
