Irishman’s wedding story has A list stars in a state of shock
They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned – well a recent story on Graham Norton’s chat show is evidence that a scorned man can also be extremely unforgiving.
The story came as part of the ‘big red chair’ segment of Norton’s show, where members of the public sit on a chair and tell an embarrassing or funny story.
If the celebrities in the studio don’t like the story they are able to pull a leaver that flips the chair backwards and sends the member of the public flying.
On this occasion Sean McInerney, from Donegal, had no such worries as he told a story of a wedding that ended up going horribly wrong.
The story took place at the wedding reception just as the groom stood up to make a speech. He asked the guests to stand up and flip over their plates and see whether there was a red dot on the bottom.
He asked anybody with a red dot on their plate to remain standing.
Sean’s story continued with the groom explaining the meaning of the red dots to all of the guests and ended with a message for his wife.
It was a brutal story but had Norton and his guests, including Hollywood stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Chris O’Dowd as well as Irish singer Niall Horan in a state of shocked laughter.
Don’t get on the wrong side of this man.
