Lost in translation! Londonderry's Aileen Faller entertains Graham Norton's guests


Hollywood stars Zach Braff, musician Taio Cruz and comedian Frank Skinner were baffled and entertained by a Londonderry student on Friday's Graham Norton Show.

Costume interpretation student Aileen Faller took on the dreaded red-chair challenge in front of Graham Norton's illustrious guests.

But it seems only Northern Ireland native Kenneth Branagh and Dublin-born Norton had no trouble understanding Aileen's accent.

Aileen told BBC Radio Ulster's Talkback that she was still "on a high" from her appearance on the programme.

"People say I must have been nervous, but I wasn't at all because I thought I wasn't going to go on the chair," she said.

"I thought my story wasn't going to get on and then the next thing the guy goes 'hurry up you're on next'.

"My family would tell me that they can't even understand me!"
