Brendan O'Carroll has revealed that he's planning to turn Mrs Brown's Boys into a musical.

The 62-year-old actor and comedian, who plays matriarch Agnes Brown in the hit TV series, says the new stage show will tour Ireland, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

O’Carroll said he will be penning the show early next year and wants the production to travel all over the world.

Speaking to the Herald, he said: "I’m writing a new show for 2019, Mrs Brown: The Musical. It will still tour, I wouldn’t stay in one place.

"One of the reasons why I haven’t done Broadway or London is because they want you to stay in one place for six months. That’s like a real f***ing job."

"Everyone will be singing. It’s hard writing anything. I’ve written a few songs. It won’t be just me."

O'Carroll also teased some well-known Irish acts as possible names to take part in his new project. "The Script, I’m hoping, will do a number. Picture This will do one. I haven’t written the story yet, but that’s where we are heading."

"We are very lucky because everybody sings. Some of them have amazing voices, and then there will be a couple of them who will rap. It will be fun," he added.

The second special will be broadcast on RTÉ at 9.45pm on New Year’s Eve.
