Limerick born Greg won series 5 of the show with Amber Gill.

Greg was joined by Newry native, social media influencer, author and fitness blogger Maeve Madden. 

He spent over an hour meeting every fan waiting in Buttercrane, taking selfies, signing everything from body parts to parental consent forms and even school diaries!
