DANIEL O’Donnell’s superfan Molly-Kate Sloyan has reinvented herself as an influencer and returned to Spain.
The 29-year-old Cork woman is living her “best life” after being released from prison in 2021 for her role in a drugs factory.
In 2017, Molly-Kate became an internet sensation for her disgusting look at the Late Late Show audience when comedian Mario Rosenstock took the stage in place of her idol.
Her expression changed from joy when former host Ryan Tubridy introduced “Daniel” to visibly shocked when the impersonator walked out instead.
Singer O’Donnell felt so bad about being cheated on at the 2016 Valentine’s Day special that he invited her to his Killarney concert six months later.
She flew from her home in Benidorm, Spain – where she now lives again – to the sold-out gig, where she even got to dance with the Co Donegal heartthrob.
But her fortunes took a turn for the worse in 2018 when she and three others – including her boyfriend – were convicted of plotting to make cocaine from imported material.
Molly-Kate was sentenced to ten years in prison in 2018, but her sentence was reduced to five years and the final year and a half was suspended.
Since her release, she has adopted a healthy lifestyle and regularly posts about starting a new chapter in her party scene in sunny Spain.
A source told The Irish Sun that Molly has turned her life around since her release from prison. He added: “She moved to Spain and built a new life there.”

This came after O’Donnell was forced to make a statement following the death of his mother-in-law Marion Roche after a heartless fraudster posed as him.
Ms Roche, the beloved mother of Daniel’s wife Majella, died at St Mary’s Nursing Home Galway.
Daniel took it upon himself social media channels to share the sad news with fans and pay tribute to Marion.
However, the singer was forced to make a video warning fans that a scammer had hacked his video Facebook website and posed as a singer online.
Daniel revealed: “I just want to make you aware that under the post someone has set up a fake page and is answering messages pretending it’s me.”
“I just want you to know that I have not responded or messaged any of you and I do not want you to interact with this person in any way.”
Daniel added that he fears his fans could be scammed if they interact with the hacker.
He said: “It is a fake site and there is no telling what this person might do in terms of fraud if you get involved in messaging.
“Thank you again for your message during this very difficult time for the family following Marion’s death.”
Daniel had acknowledged Marion in an earlier post.
He wrote: “Marion was a beautiful person. Many who met her often referred to her as ‘A Lady’.
“I was lucky to have her as my mother-in-law. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends. May she rest in peace.”
A Requiem Mass was celebrated today at St Peter’s, Moycarkey, Thurles, County Tipperary for Marion, predeceased by her beloved husband Tom, followed by a private cremation.
