17th March marks St Patrick’s Day, the time of the year everyone embraces their inner Irish! Good Morning Britain celebrated on ITV this morning by Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard enjoying a pint of Guinness live on air! The Guinness bar, keg and equipment were provided by Bexley based Mobile Bar Hire Ltd.

The portable bar providers were contacted by ITV on the 16th March in the late afternoon and asked if the set up could be carried out that night – a task that was taken by Mobile Bar Hire and executed within just a few hours of the phone call.

The bar was adorned in Irish memorabilia such as shamrocks and was cited as ‘Eamonn’s Bar’, named after the Irish presenter Eamonn Holmes. A runner was asked to pour the Irish tipple with Kate and Ben enjoying the taste live on tele.

This is not the first time that Mobile Bar Hire have worked with ITV having previously provided equipment for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Let’s Do Lunch With Gino and Mel. The Kent bar providers have also worked with the One Show on BBC.

Alan Carr Chatty Man is well known for its bright and bubbly host, Alan Carr, who entertains us in our living rooms every Friday night from 10pm. A quintessentially Chatty Man item is Alan’s drinks globe which has seen stars from across the world drinking its array of spirits.

However, this Friday’s episode had a very different drink filling the guest’s glass – draught beer. Kent based business Mobile Bar Hire Ltd provided ITV Studios with a draught beer dispenser built into the famous globe.

Pouring from the golden glitter beer tap was Peroni, a well-established premium Italian beer brand. The smooth lager went down well with the guests who enjoyed it including actor Danny Dyer, comedian Josh Widdicombe and signer Rita Ora.

Alan’s first pint poured for Josh was successful but it was clear to see the Chatty Man host needed to brush up on his pouring technique as his second pint for Danny Dyer was half beer, half froth. Later in the night, Rita Ora tried her hand at pouring a pint and was much more successful!

This isn’t the first time that Mobile Bar Hire Ltd have provided portable bars for ITV. Previously the bar specialists provided local Kent based Caveman Brewery ale and taps to Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as well as Gina and Mel Do Lunch for on-screen challenges.

Mobile Bar Hire Ltd Director Rags Sandhu said, ‘it is great to have worked with ITV again as it shows we can deliver to top clients time after time. Being as outgoing and as funny as Alan Carr is, this was an event we won’t forget anytime soon! Everyone within the ITV team is wonderful to work with and we can’t wait to see what our next collaboration together will bring.’
