"You know Steph, I watched that and thought oh no is this some St Paddy's Day gimmick but then you went and actually did the dance, hats off to you. You looked great," commented one surprised fan on Twitter.

"Oh Steph this is so good," replied another. A third added: "Wow, I didn't know you were so good at Irish dancing - it was great."

Steph amazed fans with her impressive Irish dancing

Captioning the clip shared on her Twitter page, Steph wrote: "Happy #StPatricksDay. Today to open the show I danced with the fabulous team from the Kelly Hendry School of Irish Dancing....."

She jokily added: "(Admittedly I look like their fat auntie who gets up drunk thinking she can still dance.....but hey hoo! Rolling on the floor laughing)."

Of course, it's not the first time Steph has revealed her background as an Irish dancer. Back in 2012 when she was on BBC Breakfast, she performed a tribute to the Irish dancing scene in Titanic before the film's star, Kate Winslet, appeared on the show.

Speaking to the show's host at the time, Susanna Reid, Steph admitted that she is in fact a trained Irish dancer but has since "retired".
