Rory Cowan has taken to social media to reveal that he suffered a leg injury backstage at Polly and the Magic Lamp, the panto in which he is currently starring in.

The former Mrs Browns Boys star has been appearing in the show alongside the likes of Erin McGregor, Jake Carter and James Patrice over Christmas but has had to make a slight change to his role following a calf injury.

Rory, who plays the role of Polly in the popular Dublin panto, took to Instagram to reveal that he is now joined on stage by a crutch, much to the amusement of the cast and audience members alike.






He wrote: "In the middle of @OlympiaPanto matinee I went and tore a muscle in my calf. There’s going to be lots of waiving of arms and hopping on one leg for the next few shows. I’m in bits. The physio told me the leg needs complete rest. Impossible! The show must go on."

Sharing another snap of himself on stage with a crutch, Rory added: "Well here I was last night hobbling around the stage of @OlympiaPanto. The show was the funniest yet. There’s an Irish dancing scene I had to do on one leg. The cast and audience were in hysterics. But the show must go on".

We're thankful that Rory is okay and is seeing the positive side to the situation!

Meanwhile, Rory recently opened up to us about how he spends his Christmas, and admitted that he doesn't miss the buzz around the Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas Special.


He told RSVP Magazine: "Not at all. I did enjoy most of my time working on Mrs Brown’s Boys , but I’ve left that show now. When you leave something you should have no regrets and I don’t regret leaving that show."

"It all seems like another life to me now. The only times I think of my time on the show is when I’m asked questions about it, outside of that it rarely crosses my mind."
