A far cry from Derry Girls’ Michelle Mallon, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell stars in Channel 4 prison drama Screw in the New Year. With O’Donnell set to be on screens once again, it has fans wondering about her time off-screen and what she’s been up to since filming the third (and final) season of Derry Girls. So, who is Jamie-Lee O’Donnell dating?
O’Donnell was born in Derry, Northern Ireland, which is obviously where the Channel 4 sitcom Derry Girls is set, based on writer Lisa McGee’s childhood growing up during The Troubles in the 1990s. The 29-year-old actress moved back to her hometown to film Derry Girls after studying performing arts at De Montfort University in Leicester, and has settled back in Derry since, where she lives with her DJ boyfriend Paul McCay, per The Irish Times.
McCay is a DJ and producer from Derry, who also produces a podcast, Mind Exposure. “We met in Derry through mutual friends – that old chestnut,” O’Donnell told the Belfast Telegraph in January 2018. “Nothing magical, but we were really good mates before we got together and eventually the friendship blossomed into something else, as usual.”
O’Donnell told the Belfast Telegraph that she relates to her Derry Girls character Michelle, as she loves dance music, too. According to the interview, the couple have a spare room in their house dedicated to a set of decks and a record collection.
Screw – which will air on Channel 4 on Jan. 6 – sees O’Donnell take on the role of Rose, a spirited trainee prison officer getting to grips with her new job at Long Marsh, a fictional men’s prison. She’s joined by cast members Nina Sosanya (His Dark Materials), Faraz Ayub (Line of Duty), Ron Donachie (Game of Thrones) and Stephen Wight (I May Destroy You).

The Best Memes & Tweets About the UK Government’s ‘Partygate’
In December 2021, news broke that a series of alleged staff parties and lockdown breaches had occurred within Downing Street and Whitehall offices during the height of lockdown. In the weeks following, it’s been almost impossible to avoid the increasing amount of headlines and buzz regarding what is now being dubbed “partygate”.
The ongoing scandal has so far led to the resignation of former government advisor, Allegra Stratton, after a video in which she joked about a Downing Street Christmas party was leaked to the press.
Since then, things have only gotten worse for Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party. Downing Street and Whitehall have been accused of hosting No. 10 garden drinks in May 2020, hosting two parties on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021, and hosting multiple leaving-dos for Downing Streets aides and advisors, among other alleged parties. That’s a lot of parties…
More recently, ITV News reported that around 30 people attended a birthday event for the Prime Minister in June 2020. Downing Street later admitted the gathering took place — and this latest revelation will likely form part of the ongoing investigation into parties in No 10 during lockdown, which is being lead by the senior civil servant, Sue Gray, BBC reports.
Per The Guardian, the scandal has not gone down well with some Conservative MPs, many of whom are reportedly planning to send letters of no confidence in Boris Johnson — which could see him ousted from his position as Prime Minister.
Naturally, social media has had a lot to say about the “partygate” scandal. Tweeting in response to one Tory MP’s claim that Johnson was “ambushed with a cake,” culinary queen Nigella Lawson wrote, “Ambushed by Cake: it just has to be the title of my next book! #AmbushedByCake.”
Others were quick to join in with their own hilarious takes. The Scotsman correspondent, Alexander Brown, joked, “Have you been ambushed with a cake that wasn’t your fault? You may be entitled to compensation.”
Meanwhile, in response to reports of Downing Street staff filling a suitcase with wine, the official Co-op account tweeted, “I’m afraid we don’t sell wine by the suitcase. Only by bottle. If you want to bring your own suitcase feel free.”
Here are some more of the funniest memes and tweets from across the internet about ‘partygate’.

Mel C Memoir ‘Who I Am: My Story’: Release Date, Pre-Order & What to Know
Despite previously saying fans would have to wait until she was 80-years-old for an autobiography, Mel C – otherwise known as Melanie Chisholm – is finally set to share her spiced up world with readers this autumn. Taking inspiration from her 2021 single “Who I Am”, Chisholm’s Who I Am: My Story will cover everything from her days as Sporty Spice and her successful career as a solo artist, as well as her experiences with mental health and “the difficulty of finding yourself when the whole world knows your name.”
Set to hit bookshelves on Sep. 22, 2022, you can pre-order Who I Am: My Story from Waterstones for £20 and WHSmith for £16 – both of which include a signed edition of the book. You can also pre-order the Kindle edition from Amazon for £10.39. Who I Am: My Story will also be available as an audiobook.
“It’s taken a long time to feel ready to tell my story,” Chisholm said in a statement. “The last few years have given me an opportunity to reflect on the incredible career I’ve had and the huge obstacles I’ve managed to overcome.” The singer has been very open about her experiences with mental health – particularly depression, body image, and an eating disorder – which occurred frequently during the height of her success in the Spice Girls and as a solo artist.
“I had everything I’d ever dreamed of, and was desperately unhappy,” as she told The Guardian in 2020. “It’s often forgotten that people in the public eye are human.”
Chisholm has had years of retrospection, including becoming a mum for the first time as well as returning to the world stage with the Spice Girls in 2019. “I’ve really enjoyed going back and reminding myself of the wonderful journey life has been so far,” the artist said. “I’m very excited to share my experiences with you all.”
