Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Joe Lo Truglio has addressed his character's relation to Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle.

He plays Detective Charles Boyle in the hit NBC sitcom, and during season six he made this brief allusion: "My cousin, Susan, didn't know she could sing until her late forties..."

After fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine finally cottoned on to the character's reference earlier this year, Lo Truglio spoke to Metro.

"The great thing about Charles Boyle and Susan Boyle is, when they open their mouths, absolutely unbelievable things come out," he noted.

"Both of them prove that surprises live in all of us. Don't judge a book. Of course they're related!"

Last month, fans couldn't believe they'd missed Charles and Susan's connection, with one in particular writing: "Yeah I never put 2+2 together. None of my cousins have the same last name as me, so I never assumed cousin Susan would be Susan Boyle. Should have known better lol".

Our fingers are still crossed for that tantalising cameo!
