Joanne McNally has finally revealed the identity of her mystery boyfriend.
Last month, the popular comedian revealed she has been dating an Irish man she met on celebrity dating app Raya.
The 39-year-old opened up about her new beau on her and Vogue Williams’ podcast My Therapist Ghosted Me, but avoided naming him by giving him the fake moniker ‘Peter’.
However, the Dublin native felt ready to introduce her new boyfriend to fans on Friday night, as she posted a cute selfie with him on Instagram.
Joanne captioned the since-deleted post: “Hard launch … @alanbyrne_10 💕🚀🚀 felt cute will defo delete later.”
Alan has been well-known on the Dublin social scene for years, having worked as a model and DJ.
Previously known as the ‘Mr Diet Coke’, Alan famously appeared in a TV ad for the no-calorie soft drink in 2014, which aired before Grey’s Anatomy.
Alan has also dated some well-known faces in the past, including British TV presenter Jayne Middlemiss, and Irish model Sara Kavanagh.
Joanne introduced her new beau after she revealed that they had both deleted all their dating apps bar Raya, which they have “put in a folder”.
Speaking on My Therapist Ghosted Me, the comedian said: “We’ve deleted the dating apps, we’ve both just put Raya in a folder because it’s very hard to get on. So no one is deleting Raya!”
“We were like, ‘Ok let’s not lose our minds here’. Pushing out a kid, walking down the aisle, Raya might get deleted then. But until that point, we’re both staying on Raya.”
The Dubliner also admitted she’s driving her beau “mad” with her messiness around the house.
She told Vogue: “I’m driving ‘Peter’ mad… I was laughing because ‘Peter’ is basically you, minus the fallopian tubes on acid.”
“Everything is pristine, everything faces a certain direction… and then there’s me who is accidental carnage. I just come in and everything is upside down and inside out and I don’t even know I’ve done it. I’m whispering because he’s upstairs fixing everything I’ve ruined.”
“So I tried to make the bed, and of course I came back in later and it had been remade… He’s very nice, he’s just like ‘no worries’.”
When Vogue asked what age her new beau was, Joanne replied: “He’s very mature, he’s like an adult like you.”
Raya, otherwise known as “Tinder for famous people”, is an exclusive app which allows high profile people to connect professionally or romantically.
It’s notoriously difficult to get accepted as a member on Raya, as you have to be referred by notable people who already have a profile.
