'Mrs Brown's Boys' star Brendan O'Carroll will be Gay Byrne's guest on 'The Meaning of Life with Gay Byrne' on Sunday night on RTÉ One.

During the programme O'Carroll will tell Byrne "how much his TV character Mrs Brown owes to his mum, an ex-nun, pioneering Labour TD and widowed mother of 11".

In what is described as a "frank and revealing interview", O'Carroll will also discuss "how failure taught him to succeed; how his baby son's death taught him about life; and why he's confident he'll go to heaven".

'The Meaning of Life' is on RTÉ One on Sunday, 13 March at 10:30pm.
