Rory Cowan gives update on Mrs Brown’s Boys future after Dancing With The Stars exit

The actor became the first celebrity to leave the RTE One show on Sunday night

Axed Dancing With The Stars’ contender Rory Cowan ruled out a return to Mrs Brown’s Boys.

The actor announced his retirement officially on Sunday night. It came after he became the first celebrity to leave the RTE One show with his pro dance partner Jillian Bromwich.

Speaking afterwards, Rory said he hasn’t heard from Brendan O’Carroll since he sensationally quit Mrs Brown’s Boys in 2017. Rory, 64, said: “Brendan lives in Florida. So I haven’t seen him in seven years.

“I haven’t seen Brendan since I left the show. But he’s been very supportive of everything I’ve done. Mrs Brown’s Boys fully supported me in this, and they were all behind me and they hoped that I was going to win, which is very nice. Very optimistic.

“But I do know that he supported me and it’s wonderful, just like I support him and anything he decides to do. It’s great.” But Rory dismissed the idea of ever returning to the sitcom.

He said: “I’m now officially retired. I have a contract with Fair City for this year and I’m doing that but anything else I’m asked to do. And it’s been a few things that I’ve been asked to do. I’m not doing any of them. I’m finished.

“I’m just going to enjoy myself now and do a lot of travelling. Well, when I say travelling, it’s long weekends away because of my cats, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm.

“I’ve been working very hard since I was 17. So that’s 44 years at this stage and I’m looking forward to retirement. I genuinely will take to it because I’ve worked very hard and it’s time and it’s somebody else’s turn to do whatever it is that they want to do.

“I’ve had a great career working with EMI and travelling all over the world with them. And then a fabulous career with Brendan O’Carroll. I mean, I couldn’t believe it if I hadn’t lived it.”
