No new Mrs Brown's Boys series for 2014

Brendan O'Carroll is 'too busy'

No new episodes of Mrs Brown’s Boys will be aired for the next 12 months, one of its stars has revealed.

Actor Gary Hollywood, who plays hairdresser Dino, told the Daily Record that the sitcom's creator Brendan O’Carroll is too busy to make another series.

However, there will be two new Christmas specials at the end of the year – after the sitcom topped the Christmas Day ratings with 9.4million viewers.

'Brendan’s writing as quick as he can but I’m afraid viewers will have to wait another year,' Hollywood said.

'We’ve been touring the UK non-stop and Brendan wrote a book, a movie and two Christmas specials last year. We’re also about to tour Australia, with almost half a million tickets already sold for our 42 shows.

'Once that is over, we will rush back to the UK for the premiere of Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie in June. Then we’ve two more Christmas specials to do.'
