Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie are busying filming their Eastenders spin-off show, Red Water, here in Ireland, but that doesn't mean they couldn't take some time off to visit the President of Ireland.

The actors grabbed lunch the in Áras an Uachtarin (fancy), and then decided to take pictures and selfies President D Higgins and actress Fionnuala Flanagan.

Shane took to Tiwtter to share the cheery day, captioning his pictures: “Absolute honour to meet and have lunch with president of Ireland today @PresidentIRL & Fionulla Flanagan #Redwater.”
