Pat Shortt is keeping his fingers crossed that the next project he pitches to the BBC will be a success after it turned down his last TV show.

The Tipperary man (49) put forward a comedy series to the broadcaster that was ultimately never made after the script was written.

However, the BBC has asked the actor to send in more ideas and he is hoping 2017 will be his year.

"We were working on a project with them but it didn't go ahead. It went as far as the script. They decided not to work on it but they want us to come back to them with some more projects. Hopefully this year we will go over there," he said.

Pat is looking forward to the upcoming Mrs Brown's Boys chat show but doesn't think he will be featured as his profile in the UK is not big enough.
