We feel like THEY would wanna hang out with US, y'know?


According to a new survey, almost a third of Irish men want Chris O'Dowd as their best friend, while 31% of women would like Amy Huberman as their bestie.

The One4All survey, which explored Irish friendships, revealed that we’re a nation positively smitten by the two charming stars of The IT Crowd and Threesome, who appeared alongside each other in RTÉ’s The Clinic years ago.

The survey, which was carried out on 956 Irish adults (78% female, 22% male), included various other Irish friendship facts, with almost a third of Irish adults (31%) admitting that they count more than five people in their closest group of friends.

41% of survey respondents also said that their longest friendships spanned over 20 years.

We also discovered that time and distance prove no obstacle to our friendships, with 42% of those surveyed saying they speak to their closest friends weekly, despite 12% living in a different country.

So basically we're a nation of people who secretly want to admit to their best mate...
