Vegas glams up to film new series in Dublin

WEARING red lipstick, a velvet skirt and lace-up boots, funnyman Johnny Vegas is a sight to behold in south Dublin.

The comedian is filming a new series for Sky TV in Shankill -- and stars alongside Bridesmaids star Chris O'Dowd.

Moone Boy also features comedienne Deirdre O'Kane who plays O'Dowd's mother.

The characters were yesterday filmed canvassing for presidential candidate, Brian Lenihan Snr.

Although Chris, who soared to fame thanks to his stint in Channel 4's The IT Crowd, was not on duty to film scenes for the day, the newly engaged star watched on as his pals worked.

The IFTA Rising Star nominee flew in from London on Sunday night to spend some quality time with his bride-to-be Dawn Porter, who celebrated her 33rd birthday yesterday.
