'I'm nearly done trying to kill mammy', says Baz Ashmawy on final series

Daredevil presenter Baz Ashmawy has thought of new ways to kill his 74-year-old mother.
The 40-year-old host confirmed that he and mum Nancy will head off next month to film the third season of 50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy.
However, the presenter told the Herald that this will be the last season for the Emmy-winning show, as he doesn't want to drag the Sky series out.
"I was very apprehensive and I was nearly done with two," Ashmawy said.
"I am very fond of the series, so I never want to hammer it to death. I wasn't sure there was a third series in it, but then I spent a couple of months on it and there is a great series in it."
Ashmawy said he has changed something in the new series which will add to it, but mum Nancy said that she is in the dark.
"I don't know anything that is going on, but I probably don't want to know until I arrive," she said.
The first two series have sold all over the world and Iran is the latest country to show the programme.
Ashmawy said he never takes his success for granted.
"It's different for me because I have had it and lost it before, so once you have been there it's great that it's doing well, but then it will end. The Emmy is great, but then it sits on the mantelpiece and you move on to what's next.
"It does (open doors) and all of a sudden you have a sit-down meeting with all these people that you never thought you would sit down with," he added.
The presenter was joined by mammy Nancy as they launched the Specsavers Sound Check Ireland Roadshow 2016.
They are encouraging people to take a proactive approach to hearing loss, which affects approximately 650,000 Irish people.
