'I did a photocall with a live lobster on Tuesday'

After a mad weekend, Alex and I just had a chill day in our apartment on Monday.

We ordered pizza and relaxed until I had to get my flight home to Dublin.

I had a press call for the launch of the Cathedral Smokehouse Grill on Tuesday morning, which was interesting to say the least.

I had to hold a live lobster and I just wanted to cry because I knew they were going to kill him afterwards.

They were like 'Let's smoke it in front of you' and I felt so sorry for the little guy - it was definitely one of the more unusual photo calls I've ever done.

It was really cool, though, because the pictures made it look like I was on hot coals but it was dry ice and it looked really good.

It's a great new venue and I can't wait to have a night out there with my friends once it opens.
