Rory Cowan, 60, has told that he does not keep in touch with his Mrs Brown’s Boy’s co-stars.

The star said he sends well wishes to his former colleagues but that they "don’t see each other anymore."

Rory, who was on the BBC series from 2011 to 2017, said: “I don't keep in touch with the people I worked with on Mrs Brown's Boys. Not because I left on bad terms.

"It's like anybody who changes jobs. You leave and you just don't see the old work mates you used to work with."

Reflecting at the time he suffered the loss of his mother, last November, he added: ”I got lovely texts from all at Mrs Brown's Boys when my mother died," he told the Sunday Independent.

Discussing his relationship with the show’s writer Brendan O’Carroll he said: “I get texts from Brendan every few months saying there are repeat fees from the TV series going into my account, but that's it really.

"But I wish them all the best and I'd imagine they wish the same for me. But we don't see each other anymore. That's the same in any job really."

In 2017, the star revealed why he decided to say goodbye to the role.

Rory told the Irish Mirror: “I got tired of it, I haven’t been happy for the last two years working there.

“There was no row with Brendan, there was no dispute over money or anything, in fact quite the opposite, I got so well paid that it enabled me to be able to leave, I didn’t need to stay.”

"Touring is a young man's game and he just wanted to take some time off to reassess what he would do with the rest of his life," his agent told Mirror Online.

"It was an amicable split and he has worked with Brendan for years so there was no hard feelings."

After performing at 02 for the live stage version of the franchise, he admitted he felt "fabulous" after leaving the dressing room for the final time.

He told the Irish Daily Mail: "I'm not going into details about why I was unhappy.

"I did the final show, packed my stuff into a small Waitrose plastic bag and just left the venue."
