During the evenings festivities we heard a bit of a commotion in the corner. There was a young man surrounded by women, all eager to get a selfie.
"Who's that?" I asked my colleagues.
They looked at me in horror.
"Don't you recognise Nathan Carter?"
Well I obviously didn't!
Of course I'd heard of him but I'm not a major fan of Country music so I wouldn't have been googling him at any stage!
Of course not wanting to be left out we made our way over to him and pestered him for a photo.
I may not have been a fan before, but I am now. He was genuinely a really nice fella. He must have been p***ed off being hassled on his night off when he was just trying to have a few drinks with his mates. But instead of being a diva, he stood in for every photo and chatted and laughed with his "admirers". Fair dues.
Today we were almost reunited again...on the cover of RSVP magazine.
Now if only Killian Byrne hadn't gotten in the way :)
