It was a case of exactly the right place at the right time when Donegal man Craig Magee stumbled his way onto one of the biggest talk shows in America.

The 25-year-old from Kirkstown, Letterkenny was walking down Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles with his girlfriend on Wednesday when he passed a television camera that had been set up beside the Hollywood ‘Walk of Fame’ star honouring comedian and talk-show host, Ellen DeGeneres.

The pair, who had flown into the city the previous night, suddenly heard DeGeneres call out, “Hey, yes, you with the H&M bag, what did you buy?”, and realised they were live on camera.

DeGeneres was “monitoring” her Walk of Fame star while her show was on the air, having been presented with it just a week earlier.
