Joanne McNally has revealed her boyfriend Alan Byrne was left “mortified” after she discovered an old DM from him.
The popular comedian started dating her beau earlier this year, after they matched on celebrity dating app Raya.
However, Joanne has admitted Alan actually slid into her DMs on Instagram before they matched on the dating app.
Speaking on her podcast My Therapist Ghosted Me, which she hosts with Vogue Williams, the Dublin native explained: “He slipped into my DMs originally right, but I didn’t see it.”
“I was doing a TV show at home and he slipped into the DMs, and we ended up matching on Raya a couple of months later.”
“But then I obviously saw the DM when we became friends on Insta and he was mortified,” she said.
“Because he didn’t want me to know he asked me out beforehand, you know yourself.”
Joanne continued: “And I was like ‘why did you asked me out?’, and he goes ‘I just saw you on the telly and you looked really attainable’.”
“I was like ‘how dare you?'” she joked.
The couple met on celebrity dating app Raya earlier this year, and made their romance Instagram official in June.
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.
