It was a strong start to the series with an average of 321,000 people tuning in to the show. Episode two of the show will air This Thursday Jan 12th at 10:15pm.

Does Tommy even know who Vogue is?

Tommy Tiernan said:

“I am overwhelmed by the response to the first show and keen to see if people are up for the adventure of the rest of the series. Every episode is a gamble but it’s always been my nature to take chances. I hoped the format would allow the unpredictable and the authentic to occur. The rest of the episodes are in the same vein and I hope ye all continue to enjoy them”
