They were two of Ireland's stars of 2016, and it looks like Gary and Paul O'Donovan's charm has finally hit the British mainstream.

The Olympic silver medalists feature on the New Year's Eve episode of The Graham Norton Show. The brothers joined the Cork presenter, along with Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, James McAvoy and Frank Skinner. 

Both Gary and Paul speak about their success in Rio, their Skibbereen homecoming and how they have adjusted to their new found fame, and how a fan in Cork got a 'Pull Like A Dog' tattoo.

In the five minute preview released by BBC ahead of the New Year's Eve broadcast, the two brothers steal the show, as Oscar winner Cotillard struggled to cope with the Cork brogue.

You can watch the full episode on Saturday night, from 10.25pm. Let's hope there is much more to see of the duo.
