Fair City have offered Hollywood star Jack Reynor a part after he said appearing on the soap was on his bucket list.

The programme's executive producer, Brigie DeCourcy, said he could come on whenever he was available.

"We're delighted to hear that Jack is a fan of Fair City, and, of course, we would be thrilled to have such an international star join our talented cast of actors," he said.

"McCoy's door will be open the next time Jack is back in Dublin and fancies a few pints and some Carrigstown drama."

The Transformers hunk recently said he would "love" a role on the long-running soap.

"I think that would be brilliant, man. I'd love it. Just a small little role," he said.

"Breeze in, cause a bit of mayhem you know, pull a few pints behind the bar. A bit of drama and be gone again."

He said that a few of his actor pals had worked on the RTE programme before and they said it was a fantastic show to be on.

Meanwhile, the Wicklow native has been nominated for an award at next month's Iftas ceremony.

The star is up for the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his part in John Carney's Sing Street.

Talented Reynor will be going head-to-head with Brooklyn star Domhnall Gleeson.

Reynor previously won an Ifta in 2013 for his break-out role as Richard Karlsen in What Richard Did, directed by Oscar-nominee Lenny Abrahamson of Room fame.

He's also engaged to model Madeline Mulqeen, but the pair have put the wedding on hold until they have more time to properly plan them, given his hectic filming schedule.
