Brendan O'Carroll delivers blunt message for Mrs Brown's Boys critics

The Queen may be a fan of the Irish funnyman but he is well aware not everyone else is - and had the perfect response to those who don't enjoy the hit BBC comedy

Brendan O'Carroll has put critics of Mrs Brown's Boys firmly in their place

The Irish star has outlined exactly what they should do if they don't like the hit BBC show.

Brendan has dished the Christmas and New Year shows are being delivered to Buckingham Palace ahead of being broadcast.

The Queen clearly can't get enough - but he knows some just can't stomach the programme.

When asked what he would tell his critics, he told The Sun : “Just change the f***ing channel!

“The evidence of four NTA awards means people are not just liking it — they’re actually prepared to stand up and shout it.

“Radio Times named us ‘Sitcom of the Century’ - we can only hope nothing good happens in the next eight decades to upset that.”

Brendan O'Carroll delivers blunt message for Mrs Brown's Boys critics

He has a message for those who are vocal in their dislike for the show

The Queen orders advance copies of the Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas Special, he has revealed.

Brendan, who plays “Mammy” Agnes Brown in the hit comedy, said the specials were being delivered to Buckingham Palace ahead of being broadcast.

The 64-year-old Dubliner said he had a rule of not releasing previews - but had to made one very big exception.

Brendan says there's plenty of evidence that he is doing something right

He said: “One of the few to get a preview copy is Buckingham Palace. I was speechless a couple of years ago when our producer first told me that they wanted an advance copy.”

The Christmas Day episode is based on the film It’s A Wonderful Life, where Mammy wishes she’d never been born. Her wish is overheard by angel Clyde, played by Kevin Kennedy, 58, best known as Curly in Corrie.

The New Year’s Day show is a parody of the Netflix drama, Orange is The New Black.

Fans can't wait to get a look at the Christmas special

While the Queen gets a sneak preview, Brendan never watches his show before it’s on the telly. He said: “The magic ingredient is the audience. They let us know if anything isn't funny.

The deal with them is – this is your night out, so come in, sit down and we’ll make you laugh. “I never see the show before it airs on TV."

*Both the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day Mrs Brown’s Boys episodes will be shown at 10.30pm on BBC One.
