Here's how to watch Mrs Brown's Boys 2021 Christmas special online anywhere in the world.

Mrs Brown's Boys fans will be happy to learn that the Irish comedy series will return as part of the BBC's Christmas TV line-up this year. 

The Christmas special is titled Mammy's Magical Merriment. Brendan O'Carroll recently teased what to expect from the Christmas special. He said "Lockdown has meant there was nobody to plant or pick Christmas trees, so there's a shortage this year. You can't even get them from China, so [Agnes] goes on the hunt for one!"

As if that wasn't enough, Buster is back up to his old tricks. O'Carroll added, "The latest scam by Buster Brady is that he's running a murder mystery night down in Foley that brings unexpected results."
