Rupert Everett is joining the cast of swashbuckling drama The Musketeers as a corrupt politician.

The star will play King Louis XVIII's illegitimate brother Philippe Achille, Marquis de Feron, the corrupt governor of Paris, in the third series of the show.

He said: "I'm very excited to be joining the cast of The Musketeers for the new series. I love the show and am really looking forward to working with the team."

Also joining the cast is Jamaica Inn star Matthew McNulty who will play an ambitious criminal who clashes with the musketeers.

Hilary Martin, head of BBC Drama North, said: "The third series of The Musketeers promises to be an ambitious and electric piece of drama. We are thrilled our lead writers Simon Ashford and Simon Allen's fantastic scripts have attracted such exceptionally high calibre actors to join the Musketeers on their exciting journey through war-torn and politically turbulent 17th Century Paris."
