Ryan Tubridy digs out hilarious video of Dermot Bannon on Blind Date

The Late Late Show Valentine’s special was on this week, with something for everyone whether you’re single or loved up.

One of the highlights of the show was the golden footage from the vault they found of Dermot Bannon making an appearance on Blind Date back in the day and you need to see it!

The architect once fancied himself as a bit of a romeo as he took part in the dating show in an attempt to win the heart of Jenni Falconer, who was choosing from the mystery bachelors.

“Forget the two ugly ducklings and go for the swan, number one,” was the pick up line Dermot went with to woo the mystery lady, but unfortunately the odds weren’t in his favour.

Mortified watching the clip back, Dermot laughed and likened his younger self to like “Love Island with a cardigan”.

Posting the video on his Instagram story Dermot wrote, “Thanks @latelaterte you were so kind to go to all that trouble and find this clip!! And then to post it!!”

We love that he’s seeing the humour in all of this!

This was Dermot’s second appearance on the chat show since the season returned and viewers on Twitter shared their thoughts on his return.
