Derry Girls was back on C4 last night with more teenage troubles, family fights, and scented candles – and a whole new collection of hilarious one-liners for us to quote.
Episode two of the hit 1990s Derry comedy was a trending topic again last night. The girls were trying their damnedest to get money for a school trip to Paris, while Erin’s family had to deal with a takeaway crisis – and viewers on social media loved commenting on the events.
A new character nearly stole the entire show in just a few minutes – Uncle Colm, played by Tyrone comedian Kevin McAleer – provided the most dull, dry and detailed account of him being held hostage by criminals. Everyone has an Uncle Colm in their family, which is why his scene was so hilariously relatable.
I'm so glad I didn't pick a favourite character until they introduced Uncle Colm ? #DerryGirls

Amazing how similar the Irish and Scottish humour is. "Compromise?!? I'll compromise you right through that window" #DerryGirls
