Mrs Brown's Boys viewers were not shy in letting their thoughts be known after a controversial New Year's Eve special.

The Christmas Eve episode titled Mammy's Mechanical Merriment went down a treat with fans, with the second festive episode called Mammy's Micky airing earlier on Friday.

The show enjoyed a prime time slot on RTE on Friday evening - and as ever it left people fiercely divided.

Some were full of praise for the hugely popular sitcom, with one Irish viewer writing: "Lovely episode of Mrs Brown's Boys tonight @RTEOne! Very enjoyable."

However not everyone was quite as positive, with another RTE viewer saying: "Mrs Browns Boys is on the TV. Wheres the nearest spoon so I can gouge my eyes out???"

While another added: "You think your NYE is bad? I’m STILL covid positive and am being forced to watch mrs browns boys fully masked in my sitting room."

It comes after one of the show's stars Fiona O'Carroll thanked all their fans for their great reaction to this year's Christmas special that aired last week.

Fiona was joined by her dad Brendan, ex-husband Martin and the rest of her family to watch the annual program with the whole family posing for a picture.

Speaking on Twitter, Fiona said: "Thank you everyone who watched tonight and for all your lovely comments and messages. Merry Christmas to to all from our house to yours with love."

In the Christmas Eve episode new character Mikey caused some trouble in the family as they tried to warn Granddad (Dermot O’Neill) of the new shady relative's bad intentions.

The episode, titled Mammy’s Mechanical Merriment, saw Agnes Brown ( Brendan O’Carroll ) become a new member of the church choir in Finglas.

Elsewhere, Buster (Danny O’Carroll) was forced to get creative due to a Christmas tree shortage while Dermot hosted a Murder Mystery night in aid of alcoholic greyhounds.

Speaking to the Irish Mirror last week, the stars said they actually struggle to watch the show when it first comes out.

41-year-old Fiona revealed that she pretends to be making tea while the show airs and then re-watches it by herself afterwards.

“What I tend to do is I keep putting the kettle on," she said. "And every now and then I’ll be like, ‘Right more tea!’ and I’ll head back out and be like, ‘Anybody want more tea? More biscuits?’

“I tend to keep myself busy and listen to see if I hear the kids laughing and if I hear the kids laughing I go, ‘Okay, that’s grand’."

She added: “And then I’ll re-watch it again afterwards, quietly, by myself, so I don’t go too scarlet.

“It’s a bit mortifying actually, it’s a bit weird watching yourself on TV.”

Her co-star Eilish, 69, who plays Winnie McGoogan, Mrs. Brown's best friend and neighbour, agreed saying: “No, I find it hard to [watch].

"I can watch Maria [Brown], Fiona I should say, because she’s just brilliant but when I come on, I actually have to leave the room. Seriously, I have to watch it from behind the wall.”

The actress added: “And it’s the first time we’ve seen the show as well so we’ll be watching it when you guys are watching it.

“When you’re laughing, we’ll probably be crying,” she joked. “But seriously, when you’re laughing we’ll be laughing along with you.”
