The Mrs Brown's Boys special aired on New Year's Day but fans tweeted to say they were switching it off, because it 'used to be good', but has 'lost its way.' 

The BBC show by lead actor Brendan O'Carroll aired after the popular show Happy Valley, which returned to screens for a new series after a break.

The series stars O’Carroll as Agnes Brown, a mother to six children in Dublin.
