Mrs Brown’s Boys is going global this year thanks for former star





Brendan O’Carroll has revealed that Mrs Browns Boys is going global this Christmas Day as he spoke about taking the show beyond Irish eyes.

The comedian said that this year’s Christmas special will be seen by audiences in far-reaching countries like New Zealand for the first time.


Speaking on This Morning with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, Mr O’Carroll said: ‘This year will be the first time the Christmas Special will be on Christmas Day in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, UK, Ireland and the USA.’


‘It was more important that we got the Christmas special done this year than any
other year.’

The cast were lucky to be able to film with the BBC for the upcoming special due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, but they were able to get it done.

‘It was going to be tough to do it, it took a lot to do it, but everyone in BBC Scotland was amazing and so we managed to get it together,’ the Mrs Brown actor said.

‘There was a tremendous sense of achievement and it was emotional.

‘We didn’t want to write a COVID episode because we felt that everyone has had to deal with COVID all year.

‘They want a laugh on Christmas Day. But there is the odd nod to COVID.’

Brendan said he still thinks it is strange that they have been able to take the show beyond Irish shores as he revealed a former cast member gave him the push to do it.

He added: ‘To be quite honest, I have to say I thought the BBC lost their mind. But you know what? Funny is funny.

‘And Rory Cowan, who used to play Rory and was our press agent for many, many years, often said if it works in one English-speaking country it should work in every English-speaking country and that seems to be the case.’
