Mrs Brown's Boys Rory Cowan would be ‘first one to ask to be rostered to work’ in Tesco on Stephen’s Day

Rory would love to see shops and restaurants open every day, including Christmas day according to his Twitter




Rory Cowan has admitted that he would be the “first one to ask to be rostered to work” in Tesco on Stephen’s Day.

The ex-Mrs Brown’s Boys actor took to Twitter to say that he would “love to see shops and restaurants open every day, including Christmas day. We’ve had enough restrictions during lockdown.”

But he received a lot of criticism, with someone even asking Rory: “Would you feel the same way if you worked in your local Tesco?”

He replied: “I’d be the first one to ask to be rostered to work on Stephen’s Day. I happily did two shows a day, including Stephen’s Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when I did Pantos.”

A number of major retailers have made the decision not to open on St Stephen's Day this year.

But Rory has been passionate about the topic of shops being open on December 26, as he has been arguing with those who are disagreeing with him.

The actor initially said: “It’s the reason I can’t stand Christmas. From Dec 25 until the first few days of Jan you can’t depend on any shops being open, or if they are open being open during normal hours. Get Xmas day over and get back to normal ASAP, I say.”

Rory, who claims he has “never worked for minimum wage…and neither did the people I know who are working in retail or restaurants” also believes that some people want to work on Stephen’s Day.

He made the following arguments on the popular social media apps: “The workers in these businesses have options. No need to punish those who want to work on Dec 26.”

“Why would we want to go back to employers deciding when staff must take holidays?”



He spoke of his business knowledge: “Don’t think it’s right that you wanting time off means everyone must have that time off. From Dec 26 to the end of the year (and further) it should be business as usual.”

“Here’s a great plan they should teach in business school; close business at the busiest time of the retail year.”

And he even brought religion into the discussion: “Oh I come from a time when shops closed on Sunday by law, when there was a thing called the Holy hour in pubs and other restrictions on trade. Why would we want to go back to that?”
