Strike It Lucky star Michael Barrymore is set to make a return to the small screen as an actor.

The 61-year-old, who was one of the highest paid TV stars in the U.K during his heyday in the 1980s and '90s, has been offered his first dramatic role in a hard-hitting TV show.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Barrymore said: "I was offered something yesterday. It is actually for an acting part. I think the role will surprise people. It's dark. When I read the script I was excited and got a good feeling about it."

Barrymore is also launching his own clothing label named after his Jack Russell dog Dave.
