There are some absolutely hilarious characters in the Love Island this year, from Longford lass Maura's thick Midlands accent and outrageous personality and Tommy's philosophical musings based on musical lyrics, to Ovie just doing Ovie and Molly-Mae's posh persona.

But what if one woman could impersonate them all to comedic perfection for the good of the Irish nation?

Cork woman Hayley Ryan is doing everyone a massive favour by uploading video impressions of the cast, and we're cackling at them. They're beyond spot on:

The 21-year-old from Douglas uploaded her impersonations to Twitter four days ago and they've gone viral, racking up a combined 75,000 likes between Part One and Part Two.

We can't get over the accuracy of her Maura impression, especially the word 'Curtis', and her Lucie is too accurate. It's haunting. 

Hayley spoke to the Independent.ie about the phenomenal response she's been receiving, saying;

"I love the Love Island, I am hooked on it," she said. The whole lot of us sit down on the couch and watch it every night."

After sending her pals the videos of her impersonations, she was encouraged to upload them online and they took off.

The youngster would love to crack into the entertainment industry, potentially for a presenting job, but gave up acting for sport a few years ago.

Seeing as her impressions have caught fire online and nabbed the attention of names like MTV Challenge 33 star Zahida Allen and impressionist Al Foran, we reckon a few offers will be coming in for Hayley.

There is nothing we love more than pouring over our favourite influncer's Snapchat story on the commute home, and each Irish influencer definitely has their own style and tone.

Doireann Garrihy has become a Snapchat star in her own right, after her original video of influencer impressions went viral five months ago. 

Now, the Spin 103.8 radio host has posted her second part of the influencer installation, and we're seriously hoping it will become a series.

This time around, Doireann has included Roz Purcell, So Sue Me and Pippa O'Connor in her impressions. 

The comedic genius has amassed thousands of followers thanks to her hilarious videos dedicated to some of Ireland's top personalities, and her impressions are uncanny.

The comic imitated the blogger's voices and accents perfectly, as well as mimicking their mannerisms and gestures.

In case you missed her first video, here it is; 

Doireann is also one of our amazing judges on our panel for the SHEmazing! Awards, a panel that is made up of some of the biggest and brightest stars from the media world, the food, fashion, beauty and fitness industries and, of course, the blogosphere. 

So, while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



Us Irish are a pretty good at doing the odd impression or two, but this man just blew us all out of the bag.

Brian Rogers took to his own Facebook page at the beginning of the week to share a video of him doing impersonations.

A few impressions with the Election Candadates and Pascal

But there were no movie stars or musicians in these impressions. No, Brian decided to do a whole load of Irish election candidates.

He impersonated RTE's Paschal Sheehy, Gerry Adams, Joan Burton and Enda Kenny without any hesitation. 

The party leaders debate was held on Monday in Limerick and Brian decided to do the video of what he imagined the outcome to be.

Fair play Brain, fair play. 



This may well be the best ever rendition of Disney favourite Frozen’s ultra-hit Let it Go.

This new cover stars only one man and a mic but features guest appearance from a variety of different Disney and Pixar favourites such as Mickey Mouse, Scar and even Winnie the Pooh.

In just under four minutes, Dallas Baptist University student Brian Hull delivers 21 different impressions to belt out the song.

“With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has,” 22-year-old Hull posted with the video on YouTube, ”so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song!”
