Oh no, Mrs Brown’s family has been ripped apart.

Yes, the happy family appears to be no more as one member has decided to leave the family home under a cloud.

Rory Cowan, who plays Agnes’s son Rory, has announced that he is quitting the show after 26 years but is refusing to say why he has quit.

According to reports, the actor had said he hadn’t “been happy” on the comedy for some time now and told ‘Mrs Brown’ (and the show’s creator) Brendan O’Carroll last month that he wanted out.

The Irish actor played his last performance as Rory on the touring show at London’s O2 last night.

“I hadn’t been happy working for the Mrs Brown’s Boys company for the last 18 months to two years,” he told the Irish Daily Mail.

“I feel that 26 years is enough so I decided it was time to go.

“I told Brendan on June 16 about my decision to leave.

“That’s when I handed in my notice.”

He added. “I was supposed to leave at the end of that week, but Brendan said that would be impossible and asked if I’d stay on until the end of the London O2 gigs. So I agreed to that.”

Now, we bet, like us, you’re wondering why it is that Rory hasn’t been happy on the show for so long.

Sadly, Rory isn’t playing ball and refuses to say why he’s decided to quit.

“I’m not going into details about why I was unhappy,” he said frustratingly.

“I did the final show [in London], packed my stuff into a small Waitrose plastic bag and just left the venue.”

Although Mrs Brown’s Boys has been a smash hit TV show it started out as a stage show which was a huge success around the word.
