Mrs Brown's stars could be next Morecambe and Wise

'Mrs. Brown's Boys' star Brendan O'Carroll has tipped the sitcom's duo Dermot and Buster to become the next Morecambe and Wise because of their undeniable chemistry.

The popular sitcom characters - played by Brendan's son Danny O'Carroll and co-star Paddy Houlihan - are getting their own spin-off film, and the show's creator has backed the actors to emulate comedy icons Eric and Ernie because of their on-screen chemistry.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "They are writing a movie about Dermot and Buster as a bit of a spin-off. I think it's going to be really, really successful.

"What is going to make it successful is that chemistry they have with each other. There is something that they have that is very, very rare. You saw it in Morecambe and Wise."

Meanwhile, Brendan also revealed he managed to sneak a rude reference past the BBC censors for the upcoming 'Mrs. Brown's Boys' Christmas special.

The episode - titled 'Exotic Mammy' - sees Brendan's alter ego Agnes get given a 'Maggie' - an Irish version of Alexa pronounced 'M'Gee'.

He added: "I called it a Maggie because in Ireland it's a derogatory term for a lady's part. It's a Gee. So I called it a Mag-gie.

"So when it's going out on TV in the UK people will be going: 'Oh, it's called Maggie' but in Ireland when Mrs. Brown says: 'Hold on. Let me ask Maggie', the Irish will be laughing."

Last year's Christmas Day special was watched by 6.8 million viewers, with the 'Downton Abbey' finale in 2015 being the only programme to beat it in the ratings over the past seven years.

The 'Mrs Brown's Boys' festive special for 2018 will air on Christmas Day (25.12.18) at 10.15pm on BBC1.
