Mrs Brown Boys star Brendan O'Carroll has thanked the show for saving him at his "lowest point". The actor has also hit out at "woke" critics.

He told the Sun newspaper about his critics.”: “I don’t think about them, I write the show I write. I don’t ever think of myself as being a man playing a woman, when Mrs Brown goes out on that stage she is a woman.”

“Where do you draw the line? Is it okay for Leonardo DiCaprio to play a carpenter or do we get a carpenter? Shouldn’t we get the best person for the job?” he added.

The well-loved programme has been off TV screens for nearly 10 years but will make a comeback with a mini-series next year and two Christmas specials. Mrs Brown's Boys return was due to happen in 2022, but production was put on hold due to scheduling difficulties and Covid delays.

Fiona, 41, who plays Maria Brown in the show, told the RTE Guide : "In October we'll be filming Mrs Brown: two Christmas specials and the first of a mini-series of four episodes, the other three early next year." She added: "We've the live show in November at the SSE Arena in Belfast and 3Arena in Dublin.

"And we're planning more theatre dates for next year."
