They’re a famously clean cut couple, but Majella O’Donnell has admitted her and husband Daniel were fined for speeding during filming for their UTV Ireland show.
Daniel and Majella’s B&B Road Trip has been a huge hit with viewers, drawing in an average of 230,000 people per episode and 15% audience share. In fact, it has been commissioned for a second series, set to air next year.
But Majella has revealed that there were a few bumps along the way – which she did not expect in the slightest.
“We got two speeding tickets,” he told Highland Radio. “I think one of them was when we were driving in Carndonagh in Donegal and I’m not sure where the other one was.
She added: “I certainly wouldn’t be in favour of anyone speeding and I have to say that I think we were doing 70 in a 60 zone, it was just one of those things. I can’t even remember if we were detected by a speed van or what it was but we were caught twice.”
The popular tv personality also opened up about her and Daniel’s plans for Christmas, after a hectic few months, including his stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
After spending the holidays in Donegal, the couple are heading on a four month cruise in January.
