The BBC is reportedly close to signing a deal for Mrs Brown's Boys to return this Christmas.

The BBC is reportedly close to agreeing a deal with Brendan O'Carroll to film a Christmas episode of Mrs Brown's Boys for broadcast this year.

The comedy aired for three full series between 2011 and 2013 and has returned every year since then for festive specials.

O'Carroll has previously suggested that the two episodes which aired last Christmas would be the last, but according to The Mirror, he has now been persuaded to bring the show back again this year.

"The BBC agreed with Brendan on bringing some joy to Christmas. It is great news and will bring cheer to many viewers," a source told the newspaper.

"Brendan too can have a field day trying to bring humour about life with COVID, all while bringing his amazing gags to the world.

"The deal is agreed. They just need to cover concerns about health and safety surrounding the full cast, and the timings, and it should be golden."

At its peak the show drew in more than 11 million viewers for BBC One.
