The County Antrim-born TV star James Nesbitt has been joking about his sideshow performance while attending boxer Carl Frampton's world title fight in Manchester on Saturday.

Nesbitt has admitted he had "a little bit too much hospitality" before agreeing to a TV interview from the audience, in which he appeared to slur his speech.

He sent his belated congratulations to Frampton, in a message recorded for the BBC's Nolan Show.
