Chris O'Dowd's semi-autobiographical comedy Moone Boy - inspired by the comic's own Little Crackers episode - has also been renewed, before the first series has even aired.

Set in a small Irish town in 1989, the series follows spirited 11-year-old Martin (David Rawle) and his imaginary friend (O'Dowd), with the first run of episodes scheduled for September.

Sky1 have also announced that Charlie Brooker's cop drama spoof A Touch of Cloth will return for another two-part special and a two-hour TV film.
