Stephen Fry will make his much anticipated appearance on the TG4 soap, 'Ros na Rún' tonight.

The actor and television presenter was touring Connemara last year and filming a minority language programme, when he filmed a cameo with the soap.

He will play a bewildered English tourist who gets more than he bargains for when he wanders into the premises of Ireland’s crankiest publican!

To the intense amusement and scorn of Tadhg and resident barfly, Séamus, Fry attempts to ask for directions as Gaeilge.

Tadhg and Seamus see an opportunity to exploit him, but things don’t turn out as they planned - do they ever with the wonderful Fry present?

His production company also shot behind the scenes of 'Ros na Rún' and plan to include it in 'Planet Word' which is due to air on the BBC this year.

'Ros na Rún' is on TG4 tonight at 8.30pm.
