Everyone's favourite simple-minded cleric will be added to the Fr Ted exhibition at the National Wax Museum Plus in Dublin.

Fr Dougal Maguire, looking as startled as always, will be given a home on the couch, next to the iconic Jesus throw.

He joins Fr Ted himself who stands nearby staring into space, probably thinking about all the money that was just resting in the account.

On hand at the big reveal was actor Joe Rooney who plays Father Damo, a priest who befriends Dougal and gets him into more mischief than a Catholic priest should be upto.

According to the Irish Post, the dynamic duo will eventually be joined by Fr Jack, the every laboured Mrs Doyle and everyone's favourite Bishop Len Brennan.
