Love it or hate it, Mrs Brown’s Boys looks set to be another ratings winner this Christmas, with two new episodes airing over the festive season.

Although there have been no new series of the show since 2013 – although Brendan O’Carroll has hinted that a new series could be in the pipeline – the show’s festive specials have become a regular part of Christmas viewing.

And with seasonal episodes confirmed every year until 2020, they’re showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

But when is this year’s Christmas special on – and who is in it?

Here’s what you need to know…

The Christmas Day episode is entitled A Wonderful Mammy, and takes its cue from It’s A Wonderful Life, with Agnes (O’Carroll) somehow in everyone’s bad books.

All of which leaves her pondering what life might have been like if she’d never been born – with an angel called Clyde (Kennedy) offering her the chance to see just that, and leaving her in a world she doesn’t recognise where nobody recognises her.

Meanwhile the New Year episode, Orange Is The New Mammy, sees Agnes facing a dilemma after learning that her arch nemesis Peggy Piper the Pernod Poisoner has been released from prison.
