Looks like Fran is up to his old tricks again in the upcoming fifth series of the hit TV show ‘Love/Hate’.

Show bosses have revealed a short clip of what’s to come as Nidge and his gang return to our screens with a bang this weekend... and our favourite criminal is gnashing his teeth in the middle of it all.

The teaser shows Fran being questioned about the murder of the unfortunate dentist Andrew who got caught up in the gang’s drama.

“I knew him alright but mainly he was my dentist, do you know what I mean,” he says, sitting back in his chair.

“I don’t know who would have wanted him whacked, he was a gentleman, you know what I mean.

“He done this, for free,” he added flicking his false teeth in and out of his mouth.

The new series of ‘Love/Hate’ sees Nidge broaden his horizons to Spain as he makes an effort to start afresh are in vain.

Speaking about what series five will bring for himself, Fran, Tommy, Elmo and the rest of the cast, Nidge - aka Tom Vaughan-Lawlor - has been revealing some of the direction the hit crime show will take, but without giving too much away.

"This year there's a reawakening and rebirth in Nidge and he's kick-started into the Spain thing with the renewed appetite for dining at the top table of European drug dealing," said Vaughan-Lawlor.

"His ambition is back, but there are ghosts that are still haunting him and he can't deal with them - he doesn't have the tools to understand his inner feelings.

"That's why this character is so rich to play, there's such depth to him."

The fifth series of ‘Love/Hate’ starts Sunday 5th October, 9.30pm on RTÉ One.
