Mrs Brown’s Boys star Eilish O’Carroll said it was a big career highlight to meet Caitlyn Jenner - and said she has no airs or graces about her.

The reality TV star was the guest of honour when All Round To Mrs Brown’s returned on March 21.

And, Eilish, 68, who stars as who plays Mrs Brown’s neighbour and best friend, Winnie McGoogan, admitted she was pleasantly surprised by how ‘lovely’ the megastar was.


Recalling some of her highlights since the series began, the funnywoman told Irish Daily Mirror: “I loved meeting Caitlyn Jenner.

“She was such a lovely, lovely lady.

“I can’t tell you how lovely she was. And you kind of have these preconceived notions don’t you, an American and she is so famous.

“That she won’t want to talk to anybody she’ll kind of be very insular and it couldn’t have been further from the truth.

“When she sat with us she was extremely gracious, and a very inspiring woman. And a very humbled woman, which I found really surprising.


“Now I can’t say I’m a big fan of the Kardashians, because I’m not, but at the same time I knew how big this woman was.”

And as Irish patriarch Agnes Brown, played by her brother Brendan, spared no slagging while chatting to the LA star.

Eilish added: “She was [good craic].

Eilish, who appeared on Dancing With The Stars last year, also noted Johnny Vegas’ mum Patricia Pennington as one of her all time favourite guests.

Describing the comic’s late mum, who passed away shortly after the show, as ‘inspiring’, she said: “Another moment that sticks in my mind with All Round to Mrs Brown’s is Johnny Vegas’ mum.

“She has since passed away. But I’ve got to tell you, to watch and talk to that woman, and the fun, she was so different from everybody else.

“She was just an ordinary mother, who I felt, she was the star of the show.”

“She was just a breath of fresh air.

“And she was very frail, and when I first met her I thought, ‘oh I hope she’s okay with this, and Brendan doesn’t kind of, well he would always be very gentle anyways no matter how vulnerable a person was, but she came across as very vulnerable.


“But when she went on, and she was just herself, it thought a hell of a lot of us, who are actually in the business, that actually just being yourself is probably far more engaging and charming than being something other than you are.”

All Round To Mrs Brown’s will return on BBC and RTE One this Saturday night with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes around the table.
