Mrs Brown's Boys will return to TV to celebrate its 10th anniversary in October with a one-off live Halloween special episode.

The reunion show promises "spooky going's on in the Brown household" as Agnes Brown - played by the show's creator Brendan O'Carroll - return to screens.

Speaking about the spooky special, O'Carroll said: "It’s a huge thrill to do another 'live' show for the BBC.

"It’ll be so wonderful so see them nervous all over again. We will be trying our best to stick to the script, but honestly a script is just a guideline! Bring it on!"

The hugely popular sitcom was broadcast live for the first time in 2016.

"I’m thrilled that we are marking the 10th anniversary of the award-winning Mrs Brown’s Boys coming to BBC One with this very special live broadcast," said BBC's chief content officer Charlotte Moore.

"A huge thank you to Brendan and the team for keeping us all so brilliantly entertained for a decade. I can’t wait to see what mischief Agnes and family have in store for us this Halloween."

Meanwhile, The Sun newspaper has reported that the crew are already working on Halloween costumes for the cast.

"Mrs Brown's Boys has done Christmas, now it's time to give Halloween a special treatment," a source told the newspaper.

"It's a great way to give the sitcom a fresh dose of material and fans will be in for a real treat.

"The show's wardrobe team are going to have a field day, especially when they come to decide what outfits Agnes will wear."
