Doireann candidly replied: “Negative, I do not do that. Ah where’s the craic in that come on!”

Another follower asked: “Who’s your favourite person to perform as?”

The 2fm presenter confessed: “This season probably Maura Higgins because it was a new character, and the costumes and hair and makeup was just so much fun.”

“I love Maura and Daithi as well! SoSue and Carla, Roz, like it’s hard to decide.”

During her Q&A session, Doireann also admitted she was worried the third season of her sketch series wouldn’t go ahead due to the pandemic.

“In January I was so afraid it might not happen because it was like a peak level 5 after Christmas I was like, ‘We won’t even be able to meet up to write it.'”

“But we did all that on Zoom and just made it work.”
