The entire cast of the hit comedy serious gathered together in the UK to film the two special and Danny explained that it was amazing to get to see and hug his dad again.

The actor explained: "We managed to get a Christmas special and a New Year's special in so we were very lucky to get it all in during this mess."

Speaking about filming again as a family he said: "It was amazing.

"I hadn't seen my dad, dad lives in Florida, so I hadn't seen him in seven months.

"So to get to see him when we were over there was pretty special and then I had to say goodbye to him when we were finished, he was flying back to Florida but at least I got to see him and at least I got to give him a hug."


Danny went on to explain to Six O'Clock Show hosts Muireann O'Connell and Ray Foley, that the entire cast had to self isolate and he couldn't visit his dad despite him being just upstairs from him.

The Dublin native explained: "The quarantine was quite tough because we had to go over to Glasgow and had to quarantine for a week.

"So I knew he was upstairs and I wasn't allowed to go up to him because of this whole pandemic.

"BBC were very strict, obviously, in case anyone got the Covid.

"But it's done and we're all delighted to have something in the can and to be able to show it on Christmas Day."

Danny explained that his dad had his work cut out for him making the specials as they had to abide by the new rule.

He explained: "He had to consider it when he was writing but it was changing every day.


"There were new rules, different rules everyday so up to two weeks before hand we had an audience and then we were told we going to bring the audience down to 30 people and then when we got there we were told there was no audience.

"I prefer doing it in front of a live audience.

"Dad's a pro he can do it with or without an audience but I personally like to feed off an audience, I like to get my timing from the audience."

The actor also explained on the Virgin Media show that they had to get tested regularly.

He said: "We were told that if anyone got Covid that was it, it was being pulled.

"So you didn't want to be that person to have it. We were being tested every third day, every three weeks.

"It was very full-on, nobody was in the studio, we had the whole studio to ourselves - it was really weird.

"I'm just delighted that we have it done because it was touch and go for a while."
