Daniel left red-faced following witty one liners from Majella

first_imgDaniel O’Donnell was left red-faced after his wife Majella came out with several witty one liners prodding fun at his annoying habits and what he’s like when he’s ‘rattled’ when the couple appeared on a lighthearted interview on Loose Women earlier this week.His face says it all!Majella spoke of how she has been cleared of cancer, and was commended for her strength throughout her journey with the illness.She spoke about how she ‘didn’t want him there’ during her chemotherapy as he would get on her nerves as she doesn’t ‘like people fussing’. Daniel then jokingly pretended to leave by saying ‘I’m getting on her nerves’. When asked is he ever annoying, Majella responds with ‘everyone’s annoying!’, and that he has so many bad habits that she ‘doesn’t know where to start’! She adds that ‘if you don’t get him rattled he doesn’t get excited either!’, much to the amusement of the panel, to which Daniel responded that this would be the ‘first and last time she’ll be on this show’.Majella also openly admitted to only liking ‘some of him music’, to which Daniel says ‘sometimes it’s so nice to tell a lie’.If Majella and Daniel had their own talk show – we’d definitely tune in!  Daniel left red-faced following witty one liners from Majella was last modified: October 2nd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:daniel o donnellFunnyloose womenMajella O’ Donnelltalk showlast_img read more

Parker captained the Magpies after Alan Shearer retired -but following 55 Premier League appearances on Tyneside he headed back to London to sign for West Ham.Parker became an integral player for the Hammers, making more than 100 league starts, before he handed in a transfer request following their relegation to the Championship.Tottenham would be Parker’s next stop. He enjoyed two seasons at White Hart Lane but signed a three-year deal at Fulham in 2013 which expired this summer.He played every match of England’s Euro 2012 campaign under Roy Hodgson and featured for the Three Lions at all age levels.
