Ireland's favourite TV rogues Podge and Rodge release trailer ahead of return

AHEAD of their return to Irish television, Podge and Rodge have released a trailer teasing whats to come.

Pádraig Judas O'Leprosy and Rodraig Spartacus O'Leprosy will be returning to our TV screens later this month after 9 years off-air.

Over the course of five seasons, their chat show absolutely tormented a plethora of famous faces like Rosanna Davison, Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh, Rebecca Loos, Caroline Morahan, Anna Nolan and Twink.

They also had a few pageants to find Miss Muck, Miss Poledance Fitness and Miss Muff.

After their last show aired in 2009, the brothers are back and they're welcoming a new face to Ballydung Manor.

New co-host Doireann Garrihy will join the lads this year and she might not know quite what she’s letting herself in for.

Speaking to RTE Entertainment, she said: "It's coming back and I am hosting alongside Podge and Rodge, I can't believe it, I'm still pinching myself," Garrihy told RTÉ Entertainment. "I'm so delighted to be involved.

"From the minute I walked in and met them first I was like, 'If I don’t get this gig, I'll be gutted' and I got it and I'm so thrilled to be here and to be involved in it."

When asked if Podge and Rodge are still as rude as ever, she said: "They are yeah, even more so, they've come back with a bang, more vulgarity. I think I'm able to handle them – hopefully."

Ahead of the show's premiere on 22 October, the lads have released a little teaser trailer on social media to whet people's appetites.
