But it’s not just the chatshow that will see him on our screens in the autumn, as he is also starring in a new film.

Yes, he’ll show off his acting chops in drama, Ballywater.

The comedy-drama is set in Belfast, which sees Patrick star alongside Seána Kerslake who is best known for her role in Bad Sisters.

So what can we expect from the film?

The synopsis reads: “Eileen (Seána Kerslake) is a caustic, unrepentant University drop-out whose dreams of a successful life in London have fallen by the wayside. Back at home with her mum, she makes ends meet by working as an unlicensed driver in her ex-boyfriend’s minicab.

“Shane (Patrick Kielty) has exiled himself in Ballywalter following the break-up of his marriage, but now he’s trying to get his life back on track by enrolling in a stand-up comedy course. When Shane calls a taxi to get him to his classes, Eileen answers and a surprising connection is made. As the two spend time together shuttling back and forth, a beautiful friendship develops, leading both to a moment of realisation.

“Shane reintegrates; Eileen makes peace with herself and who she really is. Finally, she can stop running and just drive.”

Ballywalter hits cinemas in September 22nd
