Rory Cowan reveals that he won’t watch Mrs Brown’s Boys after leaving the show

He may have worked on the show for 26 years, but Rory Cowan has no plans to watch Mrs Brown’s Boys since leaving the comedy programme in a shock move last year.

Speaking to EVOKE ie, the actor said he won’t be watching the new series of All Round to Mrs Brown’s, which will feature his replacement Damien McKiernan.

‘I’ve left and when I leave something, I leave it behind me,’ he said.

‘I’m very proud of my time with Mrs Brown, but I don’t want to be looking back. I know I won’t [watch it].’

The 58-year-old publicly spoke about how he ‘hadn’t been happy’ working on the show for his final few years, and that being unable to travel home from the show’s Australia tour when he was told his mother only had days to live was a major turning-point for him.

While the Dublin man previously said that he wouldn’t go into the jungle for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, his long-term colleague Brendan O’Carroll told him that presenters Ant and Dec would be interested in having him on the reality show.

‘Brendan O’Carroll said to me just a few months before I left, at the end of 2016, he had just done Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as Mrs Brown,’ he said.

‘I was sitting in with him having a cup of tea and he asked if I’d do the jungle. I said not really because if I’m going to Australia, I’m with Mrs Brown’s Boys and we stay in a five star hotel.

‘To go over there to sit in a hammock, eat kangaroo testicles and shower under a waterfall wouldn’t be for me.

‘But he said that Ant and Dec told him they’d love me on it, so I don’t know,’ he added.

Announcing his decision to leave the award-winning show in July last year, Cowan said: ‘I hadn’t been happy working for the Mrs Brown’s Boys company for the last 18 months to two years.

‘I feel that 26 years is enough so I decided it was time to go.

‘I’m not going into details about why I was unhappy.’

He did his last show at London’s 02 Arena last summer, and went on to replace Al Porter in the Olympia Theatre’s Christmas panto.
