Pat Shortt sleepwalked into a family’s hotel room after a few drinks

Pat Shortt admits he sometimes sleepwalks “when he’s really tired and has had a few drinks” – even ending up in the wrong hotel room with a couple and their kids.

I was doing a show in the west of Ireland and I went back to my room, fell asleep and woke up to this woman yelling at me,” said the 54-year-old.

“I went out and wandered the corridor, went to her room and had the decency to use her toilet before going to bed between the two of them.”

“Her husband stood there in his underwear and said, ‘Everybody calm down, everybody calm down,’ I said, ‘What the hell are these people doing in my room?’

“And I looked over and I saw two kids in bed and I said ‘this isn’t my room.’ Luckily I had all my clothes on!”

Shortrt, who recently starred in The Banshees of Inisherin, admitted he “went viral before viral was a thing.”

He will be the first guest on Ask Me Anything with Angela Scanlon tonight.

It was only a matter of time before the jumbo breakfast roll became a topic of conversation: the song still accompanies him, more than a decade after its release.

He said his daughter called him from Croke Park while she was at a One Direction performance after Niall Horan sang a verse of it.

He said: “It’s amazing, I wrote it for a show years ago and I did it on the Late Late Show, god it must have been 16 years now… it went viral before viral was a thing.

“Ruth Scott was DJing at 2FM at the time and she pushed for that. We recorded it and it became the best selling single of all time in Ireland.

“It’s great fun, but every time I’m in a bar down in Clare or something, all of a sudden you’re handed a mic and it’s playing in the background.”

Pat recalled working with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in The Cripple from Inishmaan and the time the cast went to a bar for a drink, only for Radcliffe to start singing the Jumbo Breakfast Roll .

The Daddy Ted star described him as “a really cool guy, lovely man to work with, great actor.”

He said the funniest part was that “a group of nurses from Cork were in the bar and asked me for a photo and gave him (Daniel Radcliffe) the camera and asked him to take it.”
