While the audience initially laughed in agreement as McIntyre butchered the opening lines, they were soon getting swept away by the song.

It was then that McIntyre introduced his special guest, British singer Pixie Lott who took on Kirsty MacColl’s role in the song.

The duo were then joined by a group of Irish dancers in festive Santa hats.

By this point the audience were in high spirits and clapping and singing along to the music.
