Comedian acts strangely on Irish TV show

Michael Barrymore stunned viewers with an erratic TV interview at the weekend.

The comic put on a strange accent and impersonated a chicken on Ireland’s The Saturday Night Show.

Asked by host Brendan O’Connor what he’s doing now, the 57-year-old gave a bizarre reply.

‘This year is the year of the sheep, I am the leader of the sheep society,’ he said.

Michael also claimed he’s the real father of X Factor twins John and Edward Grimes, 18.

‘I happen to know their mother very well,’ he said. ‘I send maintenance money. I don’t wish to shock.’

Michael then went over and planted a kiss on their mum Suzanne, who was in the audience.
