Mrs Brown's Boys' upcoming one-off episode, which will air later this year, won't have a swear word filter
Mrs Brown's Boys' upcoming one-off episode won't have a swear word filter.
The BBC One comedy series - which sees Brendan O'Carroll play the lead role as Mrs Brown - will keep producers on their toes when it airs this year without the five second delay, which previously gave the production team a short amount of time to bleep out any foul language.
Speaking to the RadioTimes magazine about the risky episode, the show's creator said: "[When I was told that there won't be a delay] I said, 'Oh!' because I know what I'm going to do out there, but I don't know what Mrs Brown is going to do. So we'll just have to wait and see.
"This is very exciting. When I heard the BBC were letting us go fully live I thought: 'They've lost their minds!'"
And Brendan has revealed he is constantly told to curb his potty mouth if he wants to be a recognised name in the industry, although the warning has only made him worse.
He explained: "I do get told sometimes to watch the swearing. And I always say: I wish you hadn't told me because now I'm going to do it.
"When we started, I always expected to have the f*** meeting and they called me in and said that if I stopped saying it they could put the show on earlier and make me a big star. And I said I didn't want to be a big star and so we'd make it as we wanted and if they had to put it out at 2am, then so be it."
Meanwhile Brendan - who launched the popular sitcom in 2011, which was rumoured to be axed after the pilot episode - has admitted the bad reviews don't faze him, and he plans to continue with the sitcom to make people laugh.
He said: "You have to accept the bad reviews. Sometimes you might even think, 'Maybe we could learn from that and do it differently.' But when people are questioning the entire principle of the thing - saying that a programmed watched by 12 million people shouldn't be on TV at all - I have no time for it. The object is to make people laugh. And, if we ever Britain needed a laugh, it's right now."
