Ted might finally get to America

It's the battle of wits we've all been waiting for - a showdown between Father Ted Crilly and Mrs Agnes Brown to see which comedy icon will appear in the upcoming Captain America sequel.

The Radio Times is running an online poll asking readers to choose from one of ten beloved TV shows they'd like to see appear briefly in the new superhero flick, The Winter Soldier which hits screens on March 26.

A short clip will be used from the winning show in a scene in which the beefy all-American franchise wakes up from a 65-year "ice-coma" and must catch up on what he has missed - including some great TV.

Father Ted is in the running along with Mrs Brown's Boys, Sherlock, Fawlty Towers, Downton Abbey, Coronation Street and The X Factor.

Father Ted is currently in third place with 14.3% of the vote, behind Sherlock and Doctor Who.
