Brendan OCarroll has festive condition for continuing Mrs Browns Boys

Brendan O’Caroll has a strict condition for continuing his show Mrs Brown’s Boys, according to his son Danny.

The actor has opened up about the future of the BBC One show ahead of its all-new mini-series next year.

The hit TV sitcom debuted back in 2011, followed by three series and dozens of specials.

Speaking to The Sun, Danny revealed that the Mrs Brown's Boys cast have a lot going on as they juggle the live shows and the TV series.

“We just filmed [this year's] Christmas Special up in Glasgow. So we have one on Christmas Day and one on New Year's and then we have a mini-series that we're doing early next year.”

Danny continued: “There's always stuff going on, and as long as they [the BBC] keep asking for it we'll keep doing it."

He also claimed that any new episodes or seasons of the hit show solely depend on their annual Christmas specials, as well as his famous dad.

Danny, who is best known for playing Buster Brady on stage and in the sitcom, said: “It's up to dad really but he will never retire.”

Although there is no sign of the show slowing down anytime soon, Danny admitted that this may change if their Christmas episodes stop.

He revealed: “But I think he said himself, if it's not going to be on Christmas Day, he'll stop doing it.”

It comes as earlier this month Brendan admitted he cried walking on set of Mrs Brown's Boys for the first time.

Brendan, 67, shot to fame with the comedy show, where he plays the titular role of family matriarch Mrs Brown.

While speaking on This Morning to promote his new book, Brendan was asked by co-host Holly Willoughby how he felt walking on the show set for the first time in 2011.

“We cried,” the Irish star revealed.

"Everyone of us. We had been rehearsing all week and we were exhausted.

The BAFTA-nominated actor then went on to say that he was overcome with emotion because of the attention to detail.

"When we walked in, the sitting room was exactly as it was in the books and the plays," he continued.

"The kitchen was as exactly as we wanted it to be.

"There was Irish tea, Irish everything."

Brendan also noted how there were dragonflies emblazoned on the cushions on set – which Brendan found odd as dragonflies have been “very lucky” for him, yet nobody knew that.
