The Split fans can expect a breakfast show cameo later in the third series, which premiered on BBC One yesterday (4 April).

Director Dee Koppang happens to be married to Dermot O'Leary, a mainstay on ITV as the presenter of shows such as This Morning and The X Factor.

Speaking to Radio Times, she revealed: "My husband pops up in a very, very funny blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo playing himself in it as well, which is good. Playing a breakfast TV presenter.

"It was just a very organic thing. It really is blink-and-you'll-miss-it – it's a tiny, tiny moment.

"There's a lovely moment in the script where it says one of the characters is being interviewed by a TV presenter and I was like, 'Well, I might be able to help with that'. So yeah, he came down to set for the day, which was very fun."

Teasing what else is to come, Koppang said: "There's some really fun cameos. We've got Lindsay Duncan and Jemima Rooper, and we've got Lily Cole and Tom Rhys Harries."

In case those names aren't ringing any bells, Duncan has credits in Sherlock and Birdman, while Rooper has appeared in Death in Paradise. Cole was in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Harries can be seen in The Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar's new show Suspicion.
