WATCH: The moment Maura Derrane thought Dáithí Ó Sé broke a €4,500 teapot

By Denise O’ Donoghue

As April Fools jokes go, this one from RTE Today was very good.

Dáithí Ó Sé and Maura Derrane were chatting to antique dealer George Stacpoole, President of the Irish Antiques Dealers Association, about a collection which included a small teapot he had brought to the show.

Dáithí asked about the teapot, and its estimated value was revealed.

"Well, that on its own we hope would make about €4500," said George.

Just before he could give a price for the entire collection, Dáithí's butterfingers came into play, and he completely missed the counter when replacing the teapot.

It smashed into pieces live on air - and Maura’s face was priceless.

Luckily George wasn't actually €4500 out of pocket, and RTÉ kindly reimbursed the €15 he paid for the fake antique teapot.
