Fans of Mrs Brown's Boys all had one thing to say after last night
Were you watching last night?
Fans across the country sat down last night with their leftover sandwiches to enjoy the festive special of Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Yes, for many it’s not Christmas without checking in on Agnes and her boys and this year was no different – except for one thing.
Following Rory Cowan’s departure from the show this summer, the showrunners announced that there would be another actor stepping into the role of Rory Brown.
Yes, fans waited patiently to see the big reveal of the new Rory Brown during last night's show and how they would explain the unfamiliar face.
At the start of the Christmas episode, Rory, the episode’s titular Mammy’s Mummy, appears to have undergone plastic surgery - and Agnes is fretting over his condition.
And after spending the majority of the seasonal special wrapped up in bandages, he was gradually unveiled, introducing fans to the actor who would be taking over the role – Damien McKiernan.

However, it seems not all of the fans were happy with the new Rory or the storyline that introduced him.
And of course, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
