COMEDIAN Brendan O'Carroll has insisted that the world premiere of Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie will be hosted in his hometown of Dublin instead of London.
O’Carroll refused the opportunity to hold a huge opening in Leicester Square and instead wants his fans in Ireland to be the first to see the movie on the big screen.
Rory Cowan, who plays Rory Brown in the award-winning BBC sitcom, explained that there was "no way" O'Carroll would stage the opening of the film anywhere but in Ireland at the Savoy in O'Connell Street.
"People wanted us to go to London first, but Brendan said no - Dublin is the priority and that's the way it's going to be," he said.
The silver screen version of Mrs Brown’s Boys starring Agnes Brown was filmed in Dublin last year and is due for release this summer on June 27.
Cowan also confirmed that fans can expect a Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie sequel that will be shot next year, and two more TV Christmas specials.
"We've a good break now before we start on everything next year," he said. "That's great, because we've done an awful lot of touring."
The cast of the hit TV series were recently on a sell-out tour of Australia, where they put on live shows for more than 300,000 people.
"The show is big here and in the UK, but over in Oz it's insane how popular it is. It's on Channel 7 and is the most-watched programme on TV," he added.
