Father Ted star Ardal O'Hanlon is set to make his Derry Girls debut tonight
Set a reminder.
Season two of Derry Girls has seriously lived up to expectations so far and tonight, the third episode drops on Channel 4.
Tonight, we'll see Father Ted's Fr Dougal Maguire take on a cameo role as "Awkward Eamon", a relative of the Quin/McCool family and a downright middle-aged mummy's boy.
In our first look at Ardal in his new role, creator of the series, Lisa McGee shared a sneak peek of the character to Twitter.
Lisa, clearly overwhelmed by her own creation said:
"Ardal o’Hanlon, Tommy Tiernan and Kevin McAleer in the one episode. 16 year old comedy nerd me would never have believed it."
