Watch: Jacinda Ardern reveals she did have dinner with Flight of the Conchords

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has revealed that she did indeed meet up with the Flight of the Conchords for dinner after they invited themselves round to hers on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie had invited themselves to the PM’s place for dinner, but she went one better.

"I know the challenge was put to me I should have dinner with them when I arrived back in New Zealand just to prove just how small the country is.

"I actually managed to have dinner with them in New York, so there you go," Ms Ardern told media today.

Last week Clement and McKenzie, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote an upcoming HBO special.

Ms Ardern was due to appear on the show the next night, and host Stephen Colbert asked the pair what he should ask her.

"Why don't you ask her if we can come round for dinner, maybe at her place," said McKenzie.

"You're bringing people together," he told Stephen Colbert.

It looks like the invitation was taken up, just not at the originally proposed venue.
