Two brand new Mrs. Brown’s Boys Christmas specials are coming to your TV this Christmas
All round to Mrs. Brown’s for Christmas
If there’s been a TV show as divisive as Mrs. Brown’s Boys since the turn of the millennium, then we haven’t heard of it.
It’s not to everyone’s tastes, but then again, it regularly tops the most-watched lists in the UK and Ireland.
Almost seven million people watched the 2018 Christmas special of the show, despite its less than stellar reputation among television critics.
Those figures prove, quite simply, that Mrs. Brown's Boys is incredibly popular. Which is why fans of the show will be delighted to hear that not one but two Christmas specials are on their way this year.
BBC has announced some of the highlights for its Christmas programming schedule and taking centre stage yet again is Brendan O'Carroll's comedy.
In part one, titled Mammy of the People, Agnes and her family are trying to get used to “the new normal”.
Mrs Brown has a new tree, Grandad has a new complaint and Buster and Dermot have new jobs, helping to raise awareness of the coronavirus.
In part two, Mammy’s Memories, the family try to come to terms with life after lockdown.
Priorities are soon put in focus when Winnie’s house is burgled and her mother’s much-loved wedding ring has been stolen, and Buster and Danny go in search of the perpetrator.
Mrs. Brown’s Boys is one of a number of highlights of the BBC’s festive programme, which also includes Christmas specials from Dr Who and The Vicar of Dibley and the finale of the second season of His Dark Materials.
