“She had been sent your sizes and was like ‘I think Caitriona got the part’ so we texted you.”

Caitriona admitted how she didn’t believe them, adding: “I was like no, nobody’s told me anything I’m not listening.

“He was like, ‘no, I’m pretty sure they have your sizes.’”

Oliver joked: “So you found out you got the part I think from your friend Donnell lying on his back in paper underpants in Goa.”

The pair laughed off the hilarious story during their half-hour chat on the social media platform.
