Mrs Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll threatens to KILL OFF Agnes if the show was given the axe

The Irish sitcom has developed a huge following since it first aired on the BBC in 2011. 

But despite its comical nature, star and creator Brendan O'Carroll has revealed Mrs Brown's Boys would come to a heartbreaking end if it were to be axed.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the 62-year-old threatened to kill off lead character Agnes - the beloved Mrs Brown - if the series was ever dropped completely.

He said: 'We are booked to do Christmas specials for the BBC until 2020 but if they go, 'We are going to drop you as we don't think it's strong enough' then I'd kill Agnes off.


Revealing he'd want to mix the show's trademark humour with a gut-wrenching ending, he explained: 'Our final episode would be the funniest show I've ever written for the first 24 minutes.

'Then the last four minutes would break your f***ing heart.'

Luckily for fans, the show is not receiving the axe any time soon - with the new series of All Round To Mrs Brown's kicking off on Saturday night. 

Mrs Brown's Boys started off as a stage show before being picked up by the BBC and becoming a TV smash hit.

It first aired on the channel in 2011 to huge acclaim and a movie, called Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie, was released three years later.

Brendan himself dresses in drag to portray the beloved Agnes Brown, with Jennifer Gibney - the comic's wife in real life - co-starring as her daughter Cathy.

While the wildly successful production has gone from strength to strength, the Irish comedy has still suffered setbacks in recent months.

Outraged fans called on show bosses to axe the 'new Rory' earlier this year, after he forgot his lines during the New Year’s Day special episode.

Damien McKiernan replaced Rory Cowan in the role of Rory Brown, but received lukewarm reception from fans in the 2017 Christmas special.
