The 80-year-old country music singer appeared on Friday night's Country Music Special along with Daniel O'Donnell, Cliona Hagan and Nathan Carter.

Viewers at home were left in stitches at Philomena's comments on the show as she made cheeky quips about her appearance in Nathan Carter's music video for The Morning After - which sees the pair enjoy a cup of tea in bed together and wink at the camera.

The five singers were presented with limited edition stamps at the end of the interview but a comment Philomena made to Nathan over his stamp sent Twitter into overdrive.
