Rory Cowan has given the thumbs up to Mrs Brown getting her own chat show - and reckons some A-Listers would suit the comic format.

It was recently revealed that the foul-mouthed character, played by Brendan O'Carroll, is set for her own chat show called All Round to Mrs Brown's.

It will feature a mixture of celebrity interviews and a hunt for the best mammy.

Rory reckons the new series will have audiences won over in no time.

"I know they are in talks about it. As to what exactly it will be, I don't know yet. I haven't seen Brendan since we filmed the live episodes so I will find out," he told the Herald.

The Mrs Brown's Boys star reckons the famous Dublin mammy would have the A-list guests coming in droves.

"Mrs Brown wouldn't ask the questions they always get asked and they would love it. She would be great at that because she's a nosy woman. It would be brilliant," he said.

The Dubliner also has a few famous faces in mind for who he would love to see on the new show.

"I would love Mrs Brown to talk to Kylie Minogue. I would make sure I was involved in that one somehow. I would love to be there in some way, even if it was only sitting in the background. Just to be on the same stage as Kylie Minogue or someone like that," he said.

Rory reckons Jamaican singer Grace Jones, who recently played Dublin's Olympia Theatre, would also make a fantastic guest.

The 68-year-old is well known for slapping chat show host Russell Harty when she felt he was ignoring her during an interview.

"They would need strong celebrities who can cope. Mrs Brown and Grace Jones would be brilliant.

"Can you imagine if Grace Jones hit Mrs Brown? She would wallop the head off her," he said. "It would be brilliant."

The actor was helping to mark Ireland's fifth annual Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week which takes place from Monday September 26 to Sunday October 2.
