Mrs Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll is hoping to line up Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville to star in a big screen version of the BBC sitcom.

Funnyman Brendan is working on a film which would see his alter ego Agnes fight to save her veg stall from closure, and reckons Hugh would be perfect to play a barrister with Tourette's Syndrome.

He told the Sun: "This barrister hasn't represented anyone for five years because when he is under pressure he develops Tourette's.

"I'm hoping to get Hugh Bonneville for the part. I wrote it with him in mind and couldn't stop laughing - I think he'd be brilliant."

Filming for the movie is set to begin in August ahead of a release in 2014.
