Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan is in London with Meryl Streep rehearsing for the hotly-anticipated sequel to the smash-hit movie, Mamma Mia!

They were joined by Colin Firth, Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried, who have all signed up to reprise their roles.

The 2008 Abba musical struck a chord with Irish audiences, with ticket sales of €6.4m. It is one of the nation's Top 10 big screen favourites.

Irish actor Brosnan posted a picture of himself with Streep on Instagram as he told fans about his excitement at reuniting with her for the movie.

"Back in London Town for rehearsals ... summer of 2017 ... 'Mamma Mia' ... here we go again!!" he wrote.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! is set to go back and forth through time, with a host of stars playing younger versions of the established characters.

Filming is expected to start in Croatia in the autumn.
