In a tweet promoting a €19.99 offer on flights if customers book by October 15 Ryanair use a famous quote from Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) in episode four of the sitcom.

"'Clive woke up in Derry surrounded by Russians and Fenians.' Be like Clive - three weekly flights from December, from €19.99. Book by Oct 15th," the airline tweeted.

Crystal Palace-supporting Dylan tweeted in response: "I’m not a man city fan. Please turn that into a @CPFC kit," alongside an 'in tears laughing emoji.'
