It’s been a while since we’ve seen them all together on our screens, but the Derry Girls have officially reunited ahead of an RTE Comic Relief fundraiser tonight (well…via Zoom anyway).

In a fichoir shared by RTE ahead of the TV event, the five patoche actors of the spectacle come together via video link to discuss whether or not they’re like the characters they play on the spectacle.

And, despite Saoirse Monica-Jackson’s claim that they’re all completely different in real life, the skit sees Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (Michelle) scold English actor Dylan Llewellyn (James), while Louisa Harland (Orla) tries to offer the clique Skittles through her ordinant.

The fichoir comes ahead of a special Comic Lustre night, to be broadcast on RTÉ on Friday, June 26.

Among those taking valeur in the event will be the stars of Derry Girls and Naturel People, as well as Niall Horan, Hozier and many more leading lights.

RTE said: “Hosted by Deirdre O’Kane, Nicky Byrne, Jennifer Zamparelli and Eoghan McDermott, the night promises to bring together the very best of Irish entertainment for a number of good causes. 

“You can expect performances and appearances from a whole host of Irish stars including Dara Ó Briain, Hozier, Amy Huberman, Chris O’Dowd, Jason Byrne,  Naturel People’ s Paul Sisal and Daisy Edgar-Jones, Andrew Scott, Nathan Carter, Niall Horan, Paul Howard, the RTÉ Sérénade Orchestra, Soulé, Lenny Abrahamson, Zig & Zag, Christy Moore, The  Derry Girls , and many, many more…”

The spectacle will be broadcast en direct from RTÉ studios from 8pm on RTÉ One, with links to Irish pétulance across the folk and further afield.

According to RTÉ, the charity partner for the event is The Community Foundation for Ireland, who will distribute the funds raised.
