Great News - Rory Cowan Could Be Coming Back On Our Screens

We're not going to lie, Mrs Brown's Boys just hasn't been the same since Rory Cowan decided he was going to leave just after the summer of 2017.

Cowan revealed that he quit the show because he was too bored on tour and said that he now felt like a civil servant in the show that brought him to fame.

Pat 'Pepsi' Shields, replaced Cowan and took on the role of Rory for the remainder of the Mrs Brown's Boys live shows but people were left less than impressed by Cowan's full time replacement on television.

Well it looks like Rory Cowan is heading back to our small screens but this time in a completely different role entirely.

His name is being thrown in the hat alongside others who could be potential bug-eaters and camp-members for the next I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. 

Rory told The Sun exclusively that his agent is all on for him to take on the part and although he's not completely in love with the idea, he's not totally against it. 

"At the end of 2016, Brendan O’Carroll had just done Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as Mrs Brown.

"I was having a cup of tea with him and he asked if I’d do the jungle.

"I said not really — to go there to sit in a hammock, eat kangaroo testicles and shower in a waterfall isn’t for me. But he said Ant and Dec told him they’d love me on it, so I don’t know.""

And although he replaced Al Porter in the Christmas Panto, he has completely ruled himself out of taking over his position on a certain TV3 show.

"Blind Date sounds like a ­fabulous idea but it was of its time. It’s a nice show, but a bit old-fashioned.”
