Terry Wogan is set to make a cameo appearance in the third series of Moone Boy.

Filming on the next series of Chris O'Dowd's comedy is due to begin in autumn, it has been confirmed. And its mainly British audience on Sky One will be treated to an appearance from one of its favourite Irish sons.

Limerick native Wogan, who is something of a cultural icon in the UK, is to have a part written for him especially by series creator O'Dowd.

He will join names including Amy Huberman, Bressie and Pat Shortt who have previously made appearances on the show.

Pre-production is already under way on Moone Boy season three, even though the second series has yet to air.

And it has emerged that O'Dowd is to try his hand at directing. He will take charge of one episode in what will be his directorial debut.

The show is set in Boyle, Co Roscommon, and deals with the trials and tribulations of 12-year-old Martin Moone and his eccentric family, aided and abetted by his imaginary friend Sean, played by O'Dowd himself.
