RYAN Tubridy has revealed how he ended up watching an X-rated show of a couple having sex when he went to the cinema.
Describing it as his "Molly Bloom moment", the incident happened when on a day off, the 40-year-old paid in alone to see new Superman film, Man Of Steel, at a Dublin cinema.
"It was in a cinema I don't go into very often.
"There I was sitting down with my Coke and popcorn on an aisle seat," said Ryan Tubridy.
However as the lights went down, the Late Late host said he became aware of a couple in their mid-twenties two rows in front.
"It started with a peck on the cheek, then a kiss on the lips, then it turned into the song Je T'Aime.
"I was trying to watch the caped crusader and having an awful time because this amorous couple are going pretty strong.
"And anytime it went quiet on the screen, all you could hear was the slurping of this couple at full go," he said.
But the action got even more intense as the film reached a heated moment.
"Because the screen got dark and sound louder, the action between the couple got more and more intense.
"Your man was so at her... what he wasn't doing to her! She was groaning.
"At one stage, whatever he was doing to her, hands were up over the two seats and her head was thrown back. She was groaning and using very positive words.
"I could see certain movements of the human form happening. It was close to Bloomsday. It was my very own Molly Bloom moment."
The father-of-two said the distractions meant he left the cinema with no idea "what happened" in the blockbuster and claimed to be more impressed with the passion of the couple in the neighbouring seat.
"The stamina of that young man to keep that up for two and a half hours. What he wasn't doing to her.
"It must have been the best film she ever saw in her life."
