Some viewers of BBC's Mrs Brown's Boys were certainly unimpressed as the British broadcaster opted to air the legendary programme again for Christmas.

The BBC was already receiving some backlash for their Christmas schedule that some believed was filled to the rim with repeats.

But when it came to the popular Irish comedy that usually airs on BBC One during the festive season, some spectators felt it was time to give the show a "solid pass".

Taking to Twitter, disgruntled viewers aired their thoughts.

One person wrote: "Giving #MrsBrownsBoys a solid pass. Used to laugh the moment it started but nah as the years gone on it's become less and less funny. Shame really."

Another said: "Why the f**k is Mrs Browns Boys still getting shown at Christmas 100% unfunny even worse than that we have to endure the not funny Irish Granny until 2026."

A third angry viewer commented: "Honestly, how the hell does Mrs Browns boys still get aired! Fr Dick Byrne is fuming!"

But some were very happy to see the favourite granny back on their screens during the festive period.

One person penned: "I always look forward to seeing #MrsBrownsBoys on Christmas Day! Gives me such a laugh after such a good day."

Another said: "Still funny. Don't care what anyone says."

While a third impressed viewer shared: "No clue what attracts me to this every Christmas. Must be the Irish in me but it’s become somewhat of my Christmas guilty pleasure."
