Mrs Brown's Boys' new Rory actor totally messed up his line

While many TV fans may wish Mrs Brown’s Boys would disappear from schedules forever, fans of the show only want to get rid of one character in particular.

The comedy show seems to have tested the patience of its loyal (and unbeatable) audience by recasting the character of Rory after original actor, Rory Cowan, 58, quit the show.


Viewers are now demanding that the character be completely written out of the hit BBC show after replacement actor, Damien McKiernan, caused upset among fans.

The furore kicked off on New Year’s Day when ‘new Rory’ slipped up as he made his debut in a special episode.



The character was offered a cup of tea by Mrs Brown (played by show creator and writer Brendan O’Carroll, 62) but replied: “I’m actually here to see you, Rory,” while addressing the character Mark.

His castmates burst out laughing with Brendan - still in character as Agnes - laughed: "We've had all week to learn this but that was my fault."

Fans, however, seemed to have a sense of humour failure over the gaffe and are now demanding newcomer Damien’s head.

"Let's face it, Rory was the only thing holding #MrsBrownsBoys together. This new Rory just isn't working out,” one viewer raged on Twitter.



The character was originally played by Rory Cowan for 26 years before he quit in 2017

Rory Cowan - who played the character of Rory for a total of 26 years on stage and screen - quit the show in July 2017.

He explained his reason for quitting was down to the fact he "hadn’t been happy working for the Mrs Brown’s Boys company for the last 18 months to two years."

He later explained that there was no animosity between him and Brendon, nor was there any dispute over money, stating: "I got so well paid it enabled me to be able to leave, I didn’t need to stay."



The ‘new Rory’ (Rory post-plastic surgery) was unveiled on Christmas Day, but it seems the actor who’ll play him is still getting used to his new name.
