It’s been revealed that Mrs Brown’s Boys actor Brendan O’Carroll has turned down a huge offer to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
Brendan, 62, plays Mrs Brown on the hit BBC One comedy show, alongside his wife Jennifer Gibney, who plays Agnes Brown’s daughter Cathy.
But the actor has revealed that Channel 5 approached him and offered him a spot on the new Celebrity Big Brother series, which begins on January 2.
O’Carroll told the Daily Star: “I had a tentative chat about Celebrity Big Brother but I just decided it’s not for me. I’d be homesick.”
The new CBB series will see an all-female cast enter the house on launch night, as they celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote in the UK. The male counterparts are then expected to enter during a separate show the following Friday night.
Channel 5 were forced to confirm that journalist Rachel Johnson was indeed taking part in the new series, after she released an article revealing her involvement.
