Joanne McNally joked that she succeeded after being incorrectly declared British.
His comedian was featured in a photo shared by the Twitter account @AdoreCelebs, which posted images of “British female stars” online.
The photo was taken after her appearance on Love Island: Aftersun, where she can be seen posing with presenter and fellow Irishman Laura Whitmore.
Re-sharing a screenshot of the tweet on her own Instagram page, Joanne joked that her entire career was leading up to this point.
She said: “Began performing in 2015 and I have been trying for seven years to be incorrectly declared British… feeling really emotional.”
Laura Whitmore, from Bray, commented with a bunch of smiley emojis and wrote: “You know you’ve done it when they don’t think they need to check where you’re from!”
And announcer Maia Dunphy said: “Your time has come!!!”
Joanne flew to Mallorca this week to judge Love Island: Aftersun alongside former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt and comedian Darren Harriott.
Viewers were full of praise for the 39-year-old after watching her on the spin-off as she shared her savage comments about all the couples in the mansion ahead of the finale last night.
She said that Paige Thorne and Adam Collard, who were eliminated on Sunday night and failed to make the top four, had “the chemistry of two crates of cake”, adding that she thought Luca Bish liked his teammate. That’s better than Gemma Owen. Michael Owen’s father is better than her.
Some fans loved Joanne’s brutal honesty so much that they called for her to appear in every subsequent Aftersun episode.
