Brandan O'Carroll has claimed Queen Elizabeth is a fan of his show 'Mrs Brown's Boys' and even requested a copy of the festive special last year
Queen Elizabeth is a huge fan of 'Mrs Brown's Boys'.
The BBC comedy may have received mixed reviews from viewers but the show's producer Brendan O'Carroll - who also plays the hilarious titular character in the series - isn't too bothered by the negative comments as he's got the royal family on side.
Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, he explained: "We also do know that they are personal fans! They're mad about the show."
The 61-year-old star has also claimed that Buckingham Palace - where the queen and her husband Prince Philip reside - requested a copy of the Christmas special last year.
The show's new format sees Mrs Brown - also known as Agnes - interview a celebrity's mother in the kitchen of her home while the famous star appears on stage, and Brendan has joked that he'd like to persuade the 90-year-old monarch to appear.
He teased: "It can't be a Christmas special because we've already got one [the regular Mrs Brown Christmas show has been commissioned by the BBC to 2020] but there's nothing wrong with it being an Easter special."
Meanwhile, 'Mrs Brown's Boys' isn't the only programme the queen is a fan of as it's previously been claimed she and her spouse are avid watchers of 'Pointless'.
It was also thought the couple spent their afternoons watching 'Antiques Roadshow', 'Keeping Up Appearances' and 'Dad's Army', as well as 'Downton Abbey,' which came to an end in December 2015 following five years on screen, on a Sunday evenings.
