Marcia lets hair down in Dublin

FANS are used to seeing Bree Hodge in Desperate Housewives looking immaculate, with not a hair out of place.

Away from the camera, flame-haired actress Marcia Cross's off-duty look couldn't be more different.

Mum-of-twins Marcia looked relaxed as she strolled around Dublin yesterday, arm-in-arm with husband Tom Mahoney.

While fans would have spotted her thanks to her hair, her black mac, skinny jeans, ankle boots and green hat would have thrown many off the scent.

Marcia was in Dublin for her appearance on The Saturday Night Show with Brendan O'Connor.

Desperate Housewives is the highest-rated show on RTE Two with more than 300,000 viewers.

Fans of the programme are currently seeing Bree preparing for her murder trial where she stands accused of murdering Gabby's evil stepfather.
