In her Instagram story she said: "Hi guys, I’m extremely excited to meet you all at the meet and greet with bperfect cosmetics in Ireland this weekend.

"So Thursday, I’m in Belfast, Friday I’m in Wexford and on Saturday am at Lime Rick.

"I cannot wait to meet you all, I’m super excited, I love Ireland and I love you all so I will see you there soon."

The short clip was quickly shared over on Twitter by the user, @jordken, who wrote; "Really enjoying Ekin Su’s pronunciation of Limerick on her insta stories."

The comments were flooding in with people laughing at the faux pas, and the 28-year-old quickly responded.

The star came back onto her stories after causing a storm of laughter over pronouncing it as Lime Rick and she said: "So, here’s an interesting fact; so apparently Lime Rick is called lim-er-ick in Irish.

"I just found out from some of my fans so I apologise."
