You know that gut-wrenching feeling on a Friday night when you've just got in from work and decided to have a quick nap and woken up two hours later - snug as a bug in a rug - dreading the thought of donning a pair of this season's must-have cowboy-inspired boots and skinny jeans for a night on the town?

'I'm ill. I'm tired. I had a busy day at work. I've got a super early train in the morning. I'm poor,' are excuses that regularly go through our heads when you feel the 'night out dread'.

Well, take this feeling and amp it up a couple of notches and you might, just might, be close to feeling what Hillary Clinton experienced at the thought of having to attend Donald Trump's inauguration, earlier this year.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night, the former presidential candidate jokingly revealed she tried just about everything she could to get out of attending Trump's big day, notably checking with other presidential families whether they were going.

'We thought, okay, maybe others aren't going,' she explained.

'So we called the Bushes. The elder Bushes were in the hospital, which I think was legitimate,' she joked, to applause from the audience. 'We called the younger Bushes, they said they're going.

'We called the Carters, they said they're going. So Bill and I looked at each other and said, "We gotta go".'

Think of this as your go-to Whatsapp conversation before a night out when you double-check all of your mates are really up for a night out.

'Anyone fancy a take-away and a night on the sofa? Nope? Yeah, me neither…' you type as you climb out of bed to start putting on your make-up.

Clinton also explained what really went on among the guests on stage during the inauguration, away from the media's eye.

At the end of Trump's speech, which she calls a 'cry from the White Nationalist gut', she explains George W. Bush turned to her and said: 'Well, that was some weird sh*t.'

You don't say, Hills...
