Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones are set to appear at the Edinburgh TV Festival.

The stars will join the programme’s director, Lenny Abrahamson, and executive producer Ed Guiney for a conversation about the BBC Three drama.

The series, which is an adaptation of Sally Rooney’s acclaimed novel, has become a hit since it arrived on iPlayer in April.

Last month the BBC said it has had 38 million requests to view it online.
