Sinead OConnor poses with unlikely crew including Love Island stars in epic throwback
The late singing icon Sinead O'Connor posed with quite the unlikely crew in a resurfaced snap from 2019 which includes Love Island stars, Lewis Capaldi and Irish comedian Aisling Bea.
On Wednesday it was announced by her family that the singer had passed away aged just 56, which has led to an outpouring of grief across the world.
Many stars have paid tribute to the icon, including Aisling who posted a photo she had with Sinead O'Connor backstage at the Late Late Show in 2019.
But they were not alone in the image as it also featured Love Island Stars Maura Higgins and Greg O'Shea.
The group posed alongside presenter Ryan Tubridy, and Sinead performed a rendition of one of her many smash hit songs – Nothing Compares 2 U.
During the chat show, Sinead had viewers in stitches after she said that she had envied Maura's boobs.
"I sat down beside Maura for a chat in the green room. I thought she'd forgot her blouse so I told her I was jealous of her breasts," said Sinead during the show.
"I said 'Jaysus you have the most perfect boobs, mine are completely f**cked."
After receiving a lot of supportive messages following her appearance on the show, Sinead said: "I'm very moved by all the love and support. It's really encouraging. Ryan is a very kind and very special person and I have to thank him for going well out of his way to make the whole experience one which I will remember and treasure forever.
"The reaction to the performance has nothing to do with me. It's not me, it's the song people are reacting to. 'It's something that represents real heaviness they have gone through in their life. Or joyful events they have experienced."
In her post paying tribute to the star, Aisling Bea reminisced about meeting Sinead and shared the snap of all of them backstage at the show together.
She also took to social media and said: "How desperately sad the loss of Sinead O'Connor is. For music and Ireland.
"She was an absolute hero of mine and one of the few people I've ever been star struck by. I think she could tell because I became a chatty mess.
"She was dry and funny and kind and sharp and incredibly gentle."
