Brendan O’Carroll thought there was a medical emergency in the audience during his Glasgow show on Saturday night and didn’t realise it was a brawl.

Fans of the Dublin comedian’s hit spin-off from the successful BBC One sitcom complained of a "10-minute punch-up" soon after the start of at Mrs Brown's Boys' D'Tour show at Glasgow's Hydro arena on Saturday night.

It emerged a fight broke out with the show temporarily halted while security quickly moved in restoring calm allowing the gig to continue.

But Brendan thought it was a medical emergency that had stopped his show.

A spokesman said: “There were 7,000 people there, he didn’t notice any brawl. He did stop for what he understood was a medical emergency.”

After the show, one fan wrote at the MBB Facebook webpage, "Dont know what was funnier the actual performance or the fact the show stopped whilst the fight was happening in the crowd.

Another said they "thought it was part of the show."

"Great show, except from the `extras' that had to be heard in the audience," wrote another.

Another said: "Someone was fighting lol and then one behind me was very loud and drunk. Ended up crying. But the security were fantastic and took her outside untill she calmed down and got back in lol."

Brendan's D'Live Show is currently touring the UK with shows in Sheffield, Cardiff and Edinburgh later this month.

Saturday's Hydro show was one of three performances last weekend in Glasgow.

The show visits Belfast's SSE Arena, November 4 and 5 and Dublin's 3Arena on November 11 and 12.

It comes just weeks after Brendan admitted he would “never say never” to welcoming back Rory Cowan to his cast.

Rory quit the show five years ago and Rory said he doesn’t hear from Brendan apart from a text every so often about repeat fees.

But in a new interview earlier this week, Brendan opened the door about reuniting with Cowan, saying “never say never”.

Now, Rory has echoed the Dubliner's comments – saying he never fell out with Brendan despite abruptly quitting the hit series.

Speaking exclusively to The Star, Rory said: “The main reason I quit was because my mother was dying, and she died.

“But I’m well over her death now. She’s just over three and a half years dead.

“I’m in Fair City, I’m contracted to Fair City and I love Fair City.”

“I would say never say never myself either, but it never crossed my mind about going back.”

Brendan said of Rory: “His mother’s passing really took it out of him. She had Alzheimer’s as well as cancer. He was trying to deal and cope with that. She’s passed away and he’s now recovering so see what happens. Never say never.”

Rory responded: “I never had a row with Brendan so I didn’t leave because of a row. I certainly didn’t leave over claims of not being paid enough. I was more than well paid.

“I always said Brendan was a generous employer and I was earning so much money, I was able to leave.

“I was earning nearly a lottery every year,” he said.
