Mrs Brown’s Boys creator Brendan O’Carroll expressed his sadness over being unable to reunite with his grandchildren for the first time in over a year after a contact of his came into contact with the virus.
The star, 66, will return to BBC this Christmas with two brand-new specials of the long-running comedy.
However, he won’t be able to tune in with all his family after sharing a setback to his festive plans on Christmas Eve.
The Irish comedian joined Joe Duffy on his RTE Christmas Eve special, and explained to fans why he was now unable to visit the bulk of his family.
He explained: ‘I’m staying in my bubble because unfortunately, I was in contact with somebody who was in contact with somebody who tested positive.
‘We’re waiting on the result of the PCR.’
He hasn’t seen his grandchildren for over a year, with it looking as though he would have to wait another few weeks yet.
Brendan also shared how he video chats his grandsons every day and couldn’t wait to see them soon.
He continued: ‘As I am myself, I haven’t seen my grandsons in fifteen months so I can’t wait to see them.
‘Now I’m in a bubble so I won’t see them for a couple of weeks.’
It comes after Brendan recently revealed the one very famous set of guest stars who he would love to have on the show in the future.
‘Normally we would never have famous people as guest stars on ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys’. It’s not something we do,’ he told the Daily Star.
‘But the one thing I would love to do is have Bono and U2 on. I would get them to play Foley’s at the end of the episode.’
He’s even got a plot line in mind for the famous Irish rockers, if he ever did manage to get the involved in the show.
He said: ‘I’d have Agnes go up to them on the stage just as they start playing one of their hits and go, “I don’t want to hear any of that s***.”
‘And then she gets them to play crooner songs!’
There will be two festive episodes of Mrs Brown’s Boys, with one airing tonight and another on New Year’s Day.
Mrs Browns Boys is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
