Hundreds of Irish people were turned away from attending the Late Late Show special in London.

The highly anticipated show had sent out applications to appear in the audience months ago.

But it turns out it was on a first come first served basis, so many weren’t able to get a seat.

This can happen regularly in the UK for big TV shows, as broadcasters always overbook in case people don’t show up.

 

A spokesperson for ticketing site Applause Store said the demand for tickets had been “unprecedented” and that there was a “higher-than-normal” amount of people queueing to get in.

Taking to social media, many of those who were left without a seat shared their frustration with the ticketing system on the night.
