Colin Fassnidge Reveals His Wild Night With The ‘Smoking’ Sisters Of Irish Band The Corrs
Colin Fassnidge has described a wild encounter he had with Irish pop rock band The Corrs.
The 48-year-old Irish-Australian chef appeared on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Friday and recalled the night he cooked for Corr’s siblings – Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and Jim.
After a rap battle between him and presenters Ryan Fitzgerald and Michael Wipfli, where Fitzy rapped ‘have you got the number of anyone in The Corrs?’ Colin revealed that he had met the popular group “years ago.”

‘I had to cook and they were mutilated (drunk). They drank Frangelico and they slept for dessert,” he recalled Friday during a conversation with Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa.
“Have you ever met The Corrs?” asked Fitzy.
‘I did. Years ago in an establishment,” Colin replied.
‘She is hot! She was smoking hot,” he added about one of the three female members.
‘I had to cook and they were mutilated (drunk). They drank Frangelico and slept for dessert.’
Fitzy and Wippa were surprised and joked that Colin “cooked” them.
The band’s violinist, Sharon Corr, recently made an Australian TV appearance to talk about her family’s upcoming concert in Hunter Valley.
Sharon looked almost unrecognizable when she did an interview on Sunrise last month.
The 52-year-old has ditched the striking raven locks that all members of the iconic Irish band were known for, and is now rocking a light two-tone hair color that framed her youthful face.

She wore a rock band T-shirt and chic glasses as she talked about a tour of Australia.
She hardly wore any makeup on her face and the mother of two looked incredibly youthful.
Sharon recently performed at the Esquinas Theater in Zaragoza, Northern Spain, earlier this year.
She beamed as she strode across the stage, singing with a microphone under the blue lights.
As a violinist and backing singer, Sharon rarely took center stage in the band she formed in 1990 with sisters Andrea, 47, and Caroline, 48, and brother Jim, 57.
It was goth-glam singer Andrea who took center stage as The Corrs sold 45 million albums and filled arenas with their Irish folk and pop.
Meanwhile, Sharon, who also played piano, was the band’s instrumental powerhouse.
The new album The Fool & The Scorpion is her third solo effort in 11 years – her solo tour was shelved in 2015 for a Corrs reunion.
Sharon moved to Madrid in 2018 with Robert ‘Gavin’ Bonnar, 55, and their two children, nearly 25 years after she became a household name with The Corrs.
She married Gavin in 2001 at Cratloe Church in Country Clare. The couple shares two children – son Cathal and daughter Flori.
Speaking in 2019, Sharon revealed that her children had adapted well to life in Spain, but did not name her husband.
The Corrs return to Australia on November 26 for the first time in 21 years for a one night concert.
The Irish family will take the stage along with Wet Wet Wet, Ben Lee and Gaudion.
