The Christmas special of Mrs Brown's Boys aired last night after weeks of speculation as to who would replace the iconic Rory Cowan.
Fans were devastated when Rory announced he would be leaving the BBC show because he "wasn't happy" in the role, insisting there were no hard feelings with the cast.
Teasers for the Xmas special showed Rory's replacement wrapped in bandages after having plastic surgery, with Brendan O'Carroll assuring viewers that the replacement was "really, really good".
However, when it came to the actual moment last night, fans were left a little... underwhelmed.
Professional snooker player Damien McKiernan was revealed as Rory's replacement, and a lot of viewers had the same reaction... 'who is he?'
In all seriousness who is the new actor playing Rory???? #MrsBrownsBoys

Not impressed with the new Rory at all I'm sure he is a good guy but he is nothing like the original and I don't mean looks I mean fun and laughter and a great personality in the show what a shame

Just watched last nights #MrsBrownsBoys....
I know they had to do something after Rory left, but this new one is awful. Such a disappointment ????
