'Mrs Doyle' gets naked in Shameless

She was more likely to bake cakes than show her buns as dowdy Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, but the 47-year-old Irish actress gets naked as librarian Libby Croaker in the Manchester-based show.

She said: "It's not exactly a part people have seen me play before, I was always handier as character old crones - I get to be someone my own age now and actually somebody's love interest, and I have to get my kit off because it's Shameless and sex with someone else, or something else, comes hand in hand with being on the Chatsworth estate."

Pauline McLynn joins Shameless

Irish comic Pauline McLynn will be among the cast of Channel 4's multi award-winning drama when it returns to our screens later this year.

Filming has already begun on the show's seventh series, which welcomes newcomers McLynn and former Grange Hill actress Valerie Lilley as it continues to follow the feckless residents of Manchester's fictional Chatsworth Estate.

The entrance of McLynn's character, a local librarian called Libby, attracts one man's eyes in particular--hapless father Frank Gallagher. Gallagher, who has been unlucky in love throughout the show's six-year run, is inspired my his new love, that is, until he meets her mum Patty, played by Lilley.

Elsewhere, pub owners Karen and Jamie Maguire expect a new arrival of their own, Mimi takes over The Jockey and Shane gets involved in a marriage sham.

Father Ted is an Irish comedy about 3 parish priests living on Craggy Island - a remote island, off the Irish west coast. The main four characters are Father Ted Crilly (Dermot Morgan), Father Dougal Maguire (Ardal O'Hanlan) and Father Jack Hackett (Frank Kelly) and their housekeeper (who just can't stop making tea) Mrs. Doyle (Pauline McLynn). Ted was put on the island as a punishment for going on holiday to Las Vegas with money intended for a sick child - of course..."The money was just resting in his account"!
