Mrs Brown’s Boys creator reveals plan for movie spin-off based on Buster and Dermot

Mrs Brown’s Boys creator Brendan O’Carroll has revealed he and son Danny are writing a movie based on the characters Buster and Dermot in the show.

Actors Danny O’Carroll and Paddy Houlihan play the pair who often get into scrapes dressed in bizarre outfits. Brendan, who stars as foul-mouthed Dublin matriarch Mrs Brown, said: “I think it’s going to be really, really successful.

“What is going to make it successful is that chemistry they have. There is something that they have that is very, very rare. You saw it in ­Morecambe and Wise.”
