Ireland's favourite architect, Dermot Bannon, has revealed on Angela Scanlon's Ask Me Anything that he stole a random object from Daniel O'Donnell after the singing sensation appeared on 2018's Room to Improve.

While transforming the star's home in Kincasslagh, Co Donegal, 49-year-old Bannon admits he swiped merchandise to impress his mother's pals.

Bannon said he relished being nosy walking around the country crooner's abode: "Daniel for me was a bit of an enigma. I remember the first-time walking around his house and seeing what's stashed here and there."

When asked if he took anything from O'Donnell during his stay, he disclosed: "I stole a tea towel when we were at the concert in Bundoran. A couple of my mum's friends are huge fans, so I stole it from the merch. He doesn't know I have it," he laughed.

Bannon, who is turning the big 5-0 in the near future looked visibly embarrassed when asked how he felt about being considered a sex symbol.

Struggling to put his words together, he said: "I'm bright red. It's great - why wouldn't it be? It's not something I consider myself but if people think it, feel free!

"At this stage I will take any attention," he joked.
