BBC viewers were left disappointed as Mrs Brown's Boys returned to our screens for a special Halloween episode.

The one-off live episode aired Friday night (29 October) on BBC One, and it came as the show celebrated its ten year anniversary.

However, while some fans were pleased to have Brendan O'Carroll's comedy show back on their TV sets, plenty weren't happy and swore not to watch it.

Taking to Twitter, one fuming viewer said: "FFS BBC, enough is enough, make it stop!"

A second seemed determined not to watch the show as they wrote: "Time to sit back and relax, and watch anything other than Mrs Brown's Boys."

A third felt like the show had gone downhill, saying: "Not entirely sure why we need a live Mrs Brown's Boys this evening. The show used to be a great laugh but it's nothing like it used to be."

A fourth said: "I'm usually a staunch defender of #MrsBrownsBoys but this is incredibly weak. God-awful acting in that pub scene.

"And the ending is painfully obvious already."

A fifth added: "Just waiting for #MrsBrownsBoys Live Halloween Special to star getting funny."

The award-winning sitcom promised to have lots of spooky goings-on in the Brown household.

It was Halloween in Finglas, and everyone was getting into the spooky spirit.

Agnes was ready for the trick or treaters, but she received a surprising visitor from her past when her late husband Redser turned up out of the blue.

The show first aired on BBC One in 2011, and it was broadcast live for the first time on the BBC in summer 2016.

Speaking ahead of the reunion, the show's leading man Brendan O'Carroll admitted he was feeling nervous about the special episode, and couldn't even sleep because of it.

He told BBC's Morning Live host Gethin Jones: "It’s completely nerve-wracking. When we were asked to do this interview this morning they said it would be quite early at 9 o’clock, I’ve been up since 4 o’clock, I can’t sleep.

"But I can’t wait for tonight. I'm excited too."

Originally a theatre production, Mrs Brown’s Boys was created, written by and stars O’Carroll as misbehaving matriarch Agnes Brown, who just can’t help interfering in the lives of her family and friends.

Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, said of the special: "I’m thrilled that we are marking the 10th anniversary of the award-winning Mrs Brown’s Boys coming to BBC One with this very special live broadcast".
