The new update is set to arrive tomorrow.

The 2 Johnnies have answered fans prayers as it looks like a third instalment of their explosive GAA catfish story could be on the way.

Over the past few weeks, the duo have been sharing a jaw-dropping story on their podcast about a serial catfish who ‘targeted 40 people’.

With more and more revelations every day, the comedians have said they’ll be updating fans soon, as there’s more of the story to come – as reported by The Irish Mirror.

And for those of us who just can’t wait, there’s said to be a short update on the upcoming episode of the their podcast next Monday.

Johnny B previously revealed how he connected with a woman on Instagram in January of this year, named Cora O’Donovan.

After starting to get a little suspicious when she kept making excuses not to meet up with him, he was led on a whirlwind journey with numerous many twists and turns, only to find out she was not who she claimed to be.

Johnny B decided to share his experience in the hopes that it would awareness and show people this is a real thing that can happen.

“I consider myself reasonably intelligent,” Johnny B told listeners. “But in this story I was very much taken for a fool.”

“Here’s the thing. This is something that you see on Catfish the television show and you think ‘that only happens in America’,” said Johnny Smacks.

“This has happened in Ireland to a lot of people and a lot of people that we all know in the entertainment industry in the GAA, everywhere.”

In the second instalment of the catfishing saga, the two friends sat down with psychologist Louize Carroll, who offered some insights as to why people catfish.

“You might have a need to connect emotionally when you’re in a more vulnerable stage of your life,” she said. “It’s important to have a network around you who can detect that something is amiss when situations like these arise.”
