Ryan Tubridy made a very unfortunate mistake on the Late Late Show on Friday night, as he mixed up Irish boxing hero Katie Taylor with the slightly less popular Katie Hopkins.

The outspoken Hopkins made her latest appearance on the RTE sofa last weekend, as she celebrated a shock victory for her hero Donald Trump in the US election.

Her appearance on the Late Late Show sparked a wave of complaints to the show's bosses, so Tubridy looked suitably red-faced when he was informed by the show's producers of his mistake during his interview with Taylor on Friday night.

"They have just told me that when I was saying goodbye to Katie Taylor, I said goodbye Katie Hopkins," said the host, as he rocked back in his chair.

"I just want to say, I'm sorry. It was a mistake. It has been a long week for all of us.

"I just want to tell you I love, admire and adore one Katie. And that is Katie Taylor!"

His confession brought a huge cheer from the laughing audience and you can watch Ryan's embarrassing moment here:
