Mrs Brown’s Boys creator and star Brendan O’Carroll says he’s making no promises that he’ll hold back on the choice language for this weekend’s live show.

The show, which will air this Saturday on both BBC1 and RTE1 at 9.45pm, is one of the highlights of the BBC's summer schedule.

O’Carroll told the Radio Times magazine that there will be no usual five-second delay for the one-off live show which afford’s producers the chance to block out anything offensive.

The star, who plays foul-mouthed Agnes Brown, said he finds the temptation to curse too irresistible when he’s told not to.

"I know what I'm going to do out there, but I don't know what Mrs Brown is going to do... So we'll just have to wait and see."

"I do get told sometimes to watch the swearing," he told the Radio Times magazine. "I always say: I wish you hadn't told me because now I'm going to do it.

"When we started, I always expected to have the f*** meeting and they called me in and said that if I stopped saying it, they could put the show on earlier and make me a big star. And I said I didn't want to be a big star and so we'd make it as we wanted and if they had to put it out at 2am, then so be it."
