The Christmas special is called “Exotic Mammy” and sees Agnes enter a Christmas decorating contest organised by Father Damian. We’ll also see Mrs Brown struggling to use a ‘wifi assistant’ given to her for Christmas.

The New Year’s special is called “Mammy’s Hotel” and follows Agnes putting up Winnie and Sharon at her house after their pipes burst.
