There was an impromptu reunion on the red carpet when former Celtic Woman co-stars Chloe Agnew and Lisa Lambe bumped into each other at the opening night of the 50th Anniversary production of The Field on Tuesday at the Gaiety.

"It was totally unexpected, I had no idea she would be here. I'm only home for a couple of days so I didn't even think to reach out but it was absolutely amazing to see her," Chloe told the Diary.

"We haven't seen each other since the last day we were performing together and since then we've been in different countries so it's great fun.

"I'm heading off to Germany for a couple of weeks with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, we're doing the Sound of Hollywood tour which is amazing.

"I'm their special guest so we'll be performing music from the movies and it'll be amazing. I'm really excited and so grateful for such a wonderful opportunity.

"Then it's back to the States after that so I'm enjoying my time in Ireland while I have it," she added.
