Adrian Dunbar and Imelda May will give The Graham Norton Show an Irish flavour next month.

The Northern Irish actor and the Dublin singer will be guests on the BBC One show on March 5.

Dunbar, 62, will be on the couch to talk about the new season of his hugely popular police crime series, Line of Duty.

And he will be alongside Vicky McClure who plays his devoted sidekick in the show, Detective Inspector Kate Fleming.

Now heading for its sixth series the show stars Co Fermanagh man Dunbar as the head of police anti-corruption unit AC-12.

Although the storylines are based in Birmingham the last five series of the drama have been filmed in Belfast.

Dunbar’s character, Supt Ted Hastings, has become a cult figure famous for his sayings like ‘Oh Holy Mother of God’ and ‘Now we’re sucking diesel.’

The role has turned the Hear My Song star into an unlikely sex symbol.

The actor also recently appeared in two series of Blood, a crime drama on Virgin Media One where he played a doctor suspected of killing his wife.

Imelda May, from Dublin’s Liberties, will provide the music on the Graham Norton Show singing Made to Love.

The 46-year-old first shot to fame as a rockabilly singer but has since changed her image and has been compared to female jazz musicians like Billie Holiday

She has released six bestselling albums, No Turning Back (2003), Love Tattoo (2008), Mayhem (2010), Tribal (2014), Life Love Flesh Blood (2017) and 11 Past the Hour (2021).

Other stars appearing on The Graham Norton Show that night include Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley talking about her film, Chaos Walking and Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston discussing his role as a New Orleans judge in the drama Your Honour.

British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor will discuss his romantic comedy heist Locked Down.
