Mrs. Brown's Boys returns for their annual Christmas special, which will also be accompanied by a New Year episode to help us celebrate 2024.

Brendan O'Carroll reprises his role as the foul-mouthed Irish matriarch Agnes Brown, who is known for her volatile yet hilarious relationships with her children.

There'll be more festive mishaps this year, and it seems that Brendan has been thinking about how this one would look for a while now.

Last year, Brendan told us: "I'm already thinking about Christmas 2023 and what I'm going to do with the Christmas tree!".

He adds: "I put a tree gag in the first Christmas special as a bit of fun and it became a thing, with everyone now thinking. 'I wonder what it'll be this year?' I dug my own grave there!'"

"We're a traditional family, so my kids come round Christmas morning and we eat fried Christmas pudding and bacon. Then they all come back again later — there's about 30 of us — to watch the Christmas special."
