Oh by jaysus! Put the kettle on! I can't cope. Am I dreaming? Father Ted: The Musical could be a thing! Well, here's everything we know. The shows co-writer, Graham Linehan, was having an aul chat with The Sunday Business and expressed his interest in making Father Ted a musical! It's a feckin' sign lads.

I think there is an argument you could make a Ted musical where you really go for the jugular and you get all the things people loved about it...Because it’s such a special event, it would have to be about something that’s kind of world-shaking. It would have to be about Ted becoming Pope, or some weird succession thing that means Ted’s next in line. It would have to be substantial and big.” Wait, whisht... It might not be? What? Make up your feckin' mind lads!
