Brendan O'Carroll is filling in for Marian Finucane this weekend on RTÉ Radio 1.

The Mrs Brown's Boys creator is stepping in for the presenter on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 June from 11.00am - 1.00pm.

O'Carroll is taking a break from promoting Mrs Brown's Boys: D'Movie, which is opening in cinemas today, to host the shows.

He commented: “Of course, I won’t be able to fill Marian Finucane’s seat. However, if I can sit on the edge and be a fraction of what she is, and what she does, I will be happy.

"I’m looking forward to presenting the show this weekend and hope the listeners enjoy the programme as much as I know I will.”
