Mrs Brown’s Boys has been dropped from TV schedules tonight, in place of Michael McIntyre’s quiz show The Wheel.
The comedy programme, which stars Brendan O’Carroll as Mrs Brown, was originally scheduled to air at 9:30pm.
However, due to extra time in the earlier Arsenal vs Newcastle football match, the schedule has been pushed back half an hour.
Casualty started later than usual, with The Wheel beginning at 9pm instead of the planned 8:30.
There’s currently no confirmation as to when the missed episode of Mrs Brown’s Boys will now air.
However, fans won’t have any shortage of the show in future, as Brendan recently confirmed that it will be continuing until 2026.
The 65-year-old, who stars as Agnes Brown, created the character more than 20 years ago, with the slapstick series focused on the foul-mouthed Irish family becoming a Christmas Day staple.
He told The Irish Sun: ‘It’s incredible that the BBC have nailed down such a special slot for Mrs Brown. We’ve been doing it for nine years already — which is six more than the Royle Family had and more than Morecambe and Wise.
‘This new deal we signed last week goes all the way to 2026, which means I will be able to grow into the part, and we’ve a clause in which guarantees Mrs Brown is aired at 10pm on Christmas night, or else we don’t have to make it.
‘I wanted that because if it’s not good enough for Christmas Day, then we shouldn’t be making it.’
It’s not known whether or not this new deal also includes new full series of the show, and it’s spin-off talk show All Round To Mrs Brown’s, which features celebrity guests visiting the family home.
