Doireann Garrihy has revealed her audition for Podge and Rodge was truly bizarre.
The social media star turned presenter revealed that when she went to RTE to audition for the role, she was told Podge and Rodge would just “pop up”.
“They’re just going to pop up from under the table,” Doireann said she was told by producers.
“They just throw you into it. They interviewed me as though I was a guest,” she told Dermot and Dave on Today FM.

“So they popped up and one of them was dressed as Donald Trump and the other was dressed as Kim Jong Un,” she laughed.
“Then they kind of asked me on things they’ve missed out on on the eight years they’ve been around.
“So I filled them in on social media and whatnot, and I kind of just forgot it was an audition,” she added.
The new series is set to air this Autumn on RTE 2.
