Fiona O'Carroll paid a sweet tribute to her brother Danny as the Mrs Brown's Boys star celebrated his 39th birthday this week.

The actor, best known for his role as Buster Brady in the hit BBC sitcom, marked the day surrounded by his family and castmates at BBC studios in Scotland, where Mrs Brown's Boys is filmed.

Sharing a picture on Instagram, Danny could be seen smiling with a chocolate cake and birthday card as Fiona wrote: "Happy Birthday Bro! We love you."

Danny re-shared the snap to his own account, replying: "Thank you @fiona0carroll" alongside a love heart emoji.

The much loved TV star was wearing a BBC lanyard in the photo, leading many fans to speculate that Danny and his famous family are currently filming new episodes of Mrs Brown's Boys.

Fiona, who plays Maria Brown, confirmed that a new series of the sitcom was on the way alongside the annual Christmas and New Year specials.

"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 told the RTE Guide.

"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."

Mrs Brown's Boys has become a huge success over the years but show creator, and father of Danny and Fiona, Brendan O'Carroll recently revealed he suffered a major financial loss before making it big.

The TV star had been working in the entertainment industry back in the '90s and thought he had secured financial backing for a film he wrote and directed called Sparrows.

But unfortunately for Brendan, the funding fell through and he found himself in serious debt, the same year his marriage to first wife Doreen Dowdall came to an end.

The series of devastating losses had a huge impact on his mental health, as he explained: "I was on the edge of a breakdown, a clinician would have said I was depressed, definitely.

"I have never been as low before or since. I was numb, it was like I walked down a dark alley and I couldn’t remember the way out.

"I didn’t turn on the lights, I didn’t open the curtains for three days, just picked at food, didn’t eat."

Brendan believes he was saved from having a breakdown following a dream he had about his late mother Maureen, who would go on to inspire the character of Agnes Brown.

He told The Sun: "My mother said to me in a dream, 'Get up off your knees and do something'.

"I cannot explain why but I awoke after 12 hours of sleep and I felt great."

Shortly after that dream, Brendan was surprised to hear from businessman Denis Desmond, who offered him the chance to transform Mrs Brown's Boys, which had previously been a radio slot, into a stage play at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin - and the rest, as they say, is history.
