Social media exploded into overdrive on Wednesday evening after one of the stars of, Derry Girls, shared news that she had passed her driving test .

Jamie-Lee O'Donnell, who plays Michelle Mallon in the hit Channel 4 series, Tweeted: "I finally passed my driving test! Now time for a new car, any suggestions in NI?? #finallystayedlongenufftopass #newcar."

As a reference to one of the episodes from series one, one fan replied: "Good luck getting parked in Pump Street. Cream horn n all..."

"Well done you, one of the best feelings of independence ever. Stay alert and drive safely!," said another.

Fans of the show suggested Jamie-Lee buy a new Ford Mustang, Fiat 500 and Toyota Yaris but perhaps the funniest suggestion came from a man who said she should buy an armoured Land Rover which "could be used in series two of Derry Girls".
