Everybody's favourite minions, Stuart and Kevin, have escaped from jail and will be running amok through the streets of Dublin throughout the day to celebrate the forthcoming release of Despicable Me 3.  

This morning the pair will be painted the streets yellow in Temple Bar and went searching for bananas in the Moore Street market.

This afternoon they'll  be heading on to Croke Park before paying a very special visit to the Temple Street Children's hospital. Make sure to snap a picture if you see them out and about. You can follow their progress by searching  #MinionJailBreak or @Universal_IrL on Twitter.

You can also see the minions when Despicable Me 3 is released in Irish cinemas on June 30th.
