TV3's soap Red Rock is going from strength to strength having previously sold the soap to streaming service Amazon Prime in the US, and now they have signed a deal with BBC Worldwide worth over €500,000.

A source told the Irish Independent that it hasn't been decided which BBC channel would show the IFTA winning show but that it would be a "prominent" slot, adding; "It proves that the programme has international appeal and is a great showcase for Ireland as so many scenes are filmed on outside locations. It's also a big stamp of approval for the cast and all the crew involved in it."

There's also talk of the soap airing more than twice a week as well as possible plans to not take a summer break this year. 

So it's all go for Red Rock... don't feel bad Fair City, we still love you.
