What did he say?

O'Carroll, from Dublin, had this to say regarding the contact from the Palace

'One of the few to get a preview copy is Buckingham Palace, I was speechless a couple of years ago when our producer first told me that they wanted an advance copy.'

Mrs. Brown's Boys is famous for its Christmas specials, which air every year on the BBC. The award-winning show is one of the most successful of its time and receives huge viewership figures every year. 

This year's episode will pay homage to the 1946 Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life. When asked about what makes his show so special, he said 'The magic ingredient is the audience, they let us know if anything isn't funny.'
