After their conversation, the muscles out Brussels showed Paddy some of his martial arts moves through karate bottle cutting in the RTE studio.

The Co Down man then tried to imitate him, but before he did so he went backstage to quickly change his outfit.

The presenter then came out in a dark blue sweater and skin-tight beige leggings.

Everyone in the audience burst into laughter as he pranced around the set showing off his outfit.

Patrick was worried before trying to hit the bottles.

Jean-Claude gave him some confidence and said: “It’s in you, I can feel it.”

Making a quick X-rated pun, Patrick said, “It definitely feels like it’s inside.”

After successfully smashing the bottles, he said to the audience, “I told you it was going to be great fun.”

He ended the segment by saying that he would come back after the break and “still regret wearing those tights.”

RTE viewers were blown away by Patrick’s outfit and praised him for his “bravery”.

Jackie tweeted: “That’s an unfortunate rear view Paddy. Fair play, at least it’s a bit of humor on a dreary evening.”

One fan said: “Brave man Paddy.”

Katharine wrote: “Patrick Kielty to the costume department when they asked why he insisted on nude leggings #latelateshow.”

Niall added: “I see a bit too much of Paddy – if you know what I mean.”

Big mistake

At the start of the show, Jean-Claude was completely red-faced after making a huge mistake on live television.

The muscles out Brussels flew to Ireland this week to launch a new Irish whiskey brand called Old Oak.

The launch took place on his 63rd birthday at a craft distillery outside Belfast.

And this led to Jean-Claude confusing the two Irish cities.

During the broadcast, the actor told Patrick: “And I’m back here with you in Belfast.”

Patrick made a witty joke and said wryly, “Don’t worry, thank God it’s not live.”

After realizing his mistake, Jean-Claude apologized.

He said, “Oh, Dublin. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. So now I’m here in Dublin. They gave me a schedule and I see: ‘Dublin, Belfast’.”

Patrick replied sarcastically: “I know what you mean, you come to Ireland and drink your own whiskey. That’s the problem.”
