Filming will take place in Dublin on Wednesday and Thursday February 15 and 16 with an exact location to be confirmed.

Any men who think they may be able to answer the call must provide their exact current measurements and are required to submit specific photos.

A MovieExtras spokesperson said: "If shortlisted male applications need to be Caucasian, with a chest size of 48 inches, a 38 inch waist and 6ft in height with no visible tattoos, especially on arms, hands or neck. Your face will not be seen. Applicants must be aged over 18".

Furlong has been deemed fit to return to the Irish team in Andy Farrell's Six Nations squad following an ankle injury. Ireland’s first Six Nations game of the season is against Wales in Cardiff on February 4.
