Actor and writer Brendan O'Carroll has admitted that the hardest part of his life so far has been losing his mother and his son.

His mother, who was a TD for Labour, died in 194 and his son died soon after birth when Brendan was just 21 years of age.

But the Mrs. Brown's Boys star remains very positive and he is very grateful for his massive success in life

Brendan told RSVP Live: "Loss is the hardest part of life and the most difficult thing to cope with.

"As a result, I am terrible at funerals and I avoid them if I can. Friends of mine know I won’t turn up to them. I can’t do funerals."

The TV star is a very positive person and he is very proud of his success to date, so he would rate his life at age 67 very highly.

He said: "People say to me that I must be living my dream, but I am so far past living my dream, it is unreal.

"If I died tomorrow I wouldn’t say there was anything else I wanted to achieve. I am way beyond reaching everything I’ve wanted to achieve in life."

Mrs. Brown's Boys has been a staple part of the Christmas TV guide for BBC and RTÉ viewers for over a decade but there hasn't been a series since 2013. Now, Brendan and the cast are back with brand new storylines this week and he loved writing and filming it.

He explained: "It was so cool, it really was. It was like going back and doing classic Mrs. Brown because they were four completely different episodes.

"I didn’t have to set the scenes on Christmas Day or New Year's, I was able to just write. It was a big relief.

"I also have a co-writer in Paddy Houlihan, who plays Dermot, and we came up with some fresh ideas together. It was nice to have a new voice in the writing room."

There can be a lot of negative comments online when TV shows air, but Brendan never gets bothered by them and he lets them go over his head.

He said: "I haven’t looked at social media in about seven years. In the early stages I used to look at the comments in the early days and then you read a comment from a guy who said he didn’t really like the show one week, and then you see he only has four followers. F*** him!

"He can change the channel if he doesn’t like it. When you start getting in that mood, you think 'What am I doing here?'

"I haven’t looked at Facebook, Instagram or X in years and I don’t intend to change that. I have to say, life is much more peaceful without them."

Brendan has recently teamed up with Kearns, one of Ireland’s best-selling sausage brands, to help raise funds for golfing legend, Paul McGinley’s charity, the McGinley Foundation.

For every pack of Kearns Sausages sold during the months of September and October, 30 cent will be donated, explained Stephen O’Carroll, head of sales and marketing for Kearns Sausages.

“Linking up with Kearns makes perfect sense,” explained Brendan. “My mother used to buy them on a weekly basis, and they always went down a treat whether we had them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Agnes loves a good sausage, and you can’t get better than Kearns. Agnes says, ‘go out and get your mouth around my bangers now’.”
